Description of Fuel Cell Demonstration Unit:
As shown in the illustration, the power element in the unit is a Hydrogen / Air fuel cell comprising ten cells in a stack connected to a control unit incorporating a loading system consisting of a variable rheostat, Ammeter and Voltmeter. The characteristics of the fuel cell array can be determined by the instrumentation provided. Provision is made for the use of data logger, to log the output of the fuel cell. The fuel cell employed is a type giving an energy conversion of around 40%. The cells are a polymer membrane coated with platinum sandwiched between two machined plates. The plates are then sandwiched into a 10 cell assembly between two steel end panels which form the electrodes.
