FUEL CELL TECHNOLOGY
10107011010401FUEL CELL TECHNOLOGYFuel cells are energy-conversion devices that produce electricity through the chemical oxidation of a reactant, or fuel, and an oxidant. The oxidation reaction takes place in the presence of electrolytes, which act as catalysts and strip electrons from atoms of the fuel, promoting the circulation of electrons, or electric current, through an external conduction path. In general, the fuel, or reactant, flows in, and reaction products flow out, whereas the electrolytes remain in the cell. Fuel cells can use numerous types of reactants and oxidants and can operate…
