The first fuel cell theory and application resource written for students and professionals.

With the field of fuel cells growing at a rapid pace, there is a powerful need for a single guide to the myriad disciplines related to the technology. Fuel Cell Engines provides a comprehensive and detailed introduction to the fundamental principles of fuel cell science so that a reader-whether professional or student-can gain a timeless understanding of the fundamentals that will remain relevant and useful even as the specific applications, materials, and designs change.

Offering an unbiased introduction to their fundamental concepts and applications, author Matthew Mench begins with a global perspective of the field and the practical significance of fuel cells and potential applications. He then takes you deeper into the fundamental principles, discussing:

Basic Electrochemical Principles

The Thermodynamics of Fuel Cells

Performance Characterization of Fuel Cells

Multiphase Heat and Mass Transport in Low-Temperature Fuel Cells

The Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cell

Other Fuel Cells including Solid Oxide, Molten Carbonate, Phosphoric Acid, and Alkaline Based Systems

Methods of Hydrogen Storage, Generation, and Delivery

Experimental Diagnostics and Diagnosis of Fuel Cells

A rich assortment of tools assists your mastery of the elements, including:

Many solved examples that integrate the subtopics covered in each chapter

Chapter-end case studies that expand on the topics covered and go beyond the textbook into external resources available

Chapter-ending homework problems and exercises that are supported by a solutions manual
