Fuel Cell Systems, Total Cost of Ownership
- Fuel cell
an electrochemical technology that can produce electricity or heat from a cell or a repeating unit that converts chemical energy from a fuel into electricity.
- PEM fuel cell
a type of fuel cell which operates at low temperature (50–100 °C) and has a polymer electrolyte membrane between the cell anode and cathode.
- SOFC fuel cell
a type of fuel cell (solid oxide fuel cell) that operates at higher temperatures (500–1000 °C) and which has a solid oxide or ceramic electrolyte.
- MEA (membrane electrode assembly) and EEA (electrode electrolyte assembly)
the electrochemical unit cell for PEM and SOFC, respectively, with anode/electrolyte/cathode layer composition specific to each technology.
- Fuel cell stack
a collection of unit fuel cells connected in series form a fuel cell stack.
- Fuel cell system
a fuel cell stack and associated balance of plant components that together make up an entire system.
- Balance of plant
the balance of system components that are needed to form a...
