Predavanje, prof. dr. Cesare Pianese

V okviru društva je bilo 28. 7. 2015 na Institutu Jožef Stefan organizirano predavanje Modelling of Fuel Cells – From Concepts to Applications, ki ga je pripravil dr. Cesare Pianese iz Univerze v Salermu, Italija.


Modelling of Fuel Cells – From Concepts to Applications


The recent advances in fuel cell technology have paved the way for a near future deployment of both Solid Oxide and PEM fuel cells for µ-CHP and automotive applications respectively. To guarantee the achievement of performance comparable to other energy conversion products improvements on diagnostic tools are required.

The seminar deals with the basic concepts of SOFC and PEMFC stack and balance of plant. Modelling approaches together with model-based diagnosis principles will be given. The results of the project D-CODE will be summarised to outline the on-board EIS-based diagnosis of PEMFC.
