Dr. Julian Dailly
This lecture deals with the transversal subject “Fuel Cells”. From the actual energy context through the manufacture and characterizations of Fuel Cells, it covers different approaches (thermodynamic, electrochemical, environmental …) to fully discover and understand those devices.
The thermodynamic and electrochemical properties will be described to highlight the place of the Fuel Cells in the future energetic mix. Focused on high temperature systems, the learning of manufacturing processes, characterizations and modelling will be approached using concrete examples from laboratories and industries. A specific part is dedicated to the hydrogen vector, one of the key advantages of Fuel Cells.
