The development of fuel cell technology has been underway for over 30 years. Fuel cell power systems are attractive for vehicle propulsion, offering low emission and high efficiency levels. 'Fuel Cell Technology for Vehicles' is a collection of 31 of the most important technical papers in this area, offering a current perspective on this rapidly evolving technology. SECTIONS COVER: The Fuel Cell Vehicle in the Transport Infrastructure - Discusses the fuel processor and fuel cell stack developments, deployment, vehicle performance, costs to manufacture, and both local and global environmental impacts; Fuel and Fuel Choice - The fuel that might best meet the needs of a fuel cell vehicle is hotly debated and the choice is by no means certain.The papers in this section are drawn from a variety of sources and represent a broad viewpoint; Fuel Processing - Describes a different emphasis on the development of an on-vehicle fuel processor and illustrates the challenges faced; Fuel Cell Stacks - Discusses the design and operational characteristics of fuel cell stacks, PEM and solid oxide technology, and the status of the development of a direct methanol fuel cell; System Questions - Putting It All Together - Covers topics such as the choice of electrical systems parameters and hybridization alternatives; Balance of Plant - Discusses balance of plant topics including compressor expander units, intake and exhaust systems, thermal management and the sizing of the fuel cell stack; Modeling and Control of Fuel Cell Power Systems - Discusses possible control strategies, the development processes, and promising solutions. The section concludes with an analysis of a study on the true efficiency of alternative vehicle powerplants and alternative fuels.
