Electrochemistry of Fuel Cells and Batteries

ENG MS 545

Electrochemistry of high temperature fuel cells, batteries and ceramic gas separation membranes. Types, advantages and disadvantages of fuel cells currently being developed by the power generation industry, and the electrochemical underpinnings of fuel cell operation. Thermodynamics of fuel cells, electrode kinetics and mass transport in porous electrodes. Measurements techniques (dc polarization, ac impedance spectroscopy and blocking electrodes) used extensively in fuel cell research and development. Operation of batteries and ceramic gas separation membranes. Current manufacturing techniques used in fuel cell industry. Meets with ENGME545. Students may not receive credit for both.
