Fuel cell technology is developing at a rapid pace, thanks to the increasing awareness of the need for pollution-free power sources. Moreover, new developments in catalysts and improved reliability have made fuel cells viable candidates in a road range of applications, from small power stations, to cars, to laptop computers and mobile phones. Building on the success of the first edition, Fuel Cell Systems Explained presents a balanced introduction to this growing area. "In summary, an altogether satisfying book that puts within its covers the academic tools necessary for explaining fuel cell systems on a multidisciplinary basis." - Power Engineering Journal "An excellent book...well written and produced."- Journal of Power and Energy
The standard will provide guidance on best practices to ensure consistent, high quality measurements of Particle Number from both raw and dilute vehicle and engine exhaust streams. Key elements will include proper positioning of sample probes, conditioning of sample streams and maintenance.
This document presents the requirements for a built-in service port to be used in vehicles intended to comply with Enhanced Evaporative Emissions Requirements. The primary function of the Service Port (Valve Assembly-Evaporative Emission Canister Purge Harness Service) is to provide non-destructive access to the evaporative emissions system to enable testing of the integrity of the system. The Service Port is used to introduce air pressure or fuel vapors into, or evacuates them out of, the system. This access may be used for the following evaluations: • Evaporative System Certifications Canister Loading and Purging • End-of-line Testing System Integrity • Service (e.g. OBD MIL on) Leak Location and Repair Verification • In-Use Compliance Testing Canister Loading and Purging • Inspection/Maintenance Testing System Integrity and Purge Check
The purpose of this SAE STandard is to provide standard test procedures for crankcase emission control systems and/or devices. The procedures included are for determining: a. The flow rate of the blowby of an engine; b. The flow rates through the crankcase emission control system inlet and outlet. This code is written to cover crankcase emission control systems which are designed to reduce the emission of engine blowby gases to the atmosphere. The code includes the following sections: 3. Definitions and Terminology; 4. Test Equipment; 5. Test Procedures; 6. Information and Data to be Recorded; 7. Data Analysis; 8. Presentation of Information and Data.
