Title (EN) SHUTDOWN PROCEDURE TO IMPROVE STARTUP AT SUB-FREEZING TEMPERATURES
(FR) PROCEDURE D'ARRET AMELIORANT LE DEMARRAGE A DES TEMPERATURES INFERIEURES A ZERO DEGRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method for shutting down a fuel cell system including a plurality of fuel cells arranged in a stack, includes cooling the fuel cells to a shutdown temperature while maintaining a substantially uniform water vapor pressure through the fuel cells whereby migration of water within the fuel cells during cooling is reduced.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé d'arrêt d'un dispositif de piles à combustible doté d'une pluralité de piles à combustible empilées. Ce procédé consiste à refroidir les piles à combustible jusqu'à une température d'arrêt tout en y maintenant une pression de vapeur d'eau sensiblement uniforme. Au cours du refroidissement, la migration de l'eau dans les piles à combustible est réduite.
