Title (EN) FUEL CELL FUEL PROCESSOR WITH HYDROGEN BUFFERING
(FR) PROCESSEUR DE COMBUSTIBLE DE PILE A COMBUSTIBLE A TAMPON D'HYDROGENE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A fuel cell system is provided which includes a hydrocarbon fuel processor for generating hydrogen for use in a fuel cell. The system further includes a hydrogen buffer for storing a portion of the hydrogen generated by the fuel processor. This stored hydrogen may then be used during start-up of the system was number of ways such as feed for the fuel cell, or when the fuel processor output is temporarily less than that required by the operating demand of the fuel cell.
(FR)Système de pile à combustible comprenant un processeur de combustible d'hydrocarbure pour la production d'hydrogène dans une pile à combustible, mais aussi un tampon d'hydrogène stockant une partie de l'hydrogène produit par le processeur de combustible, cet hydrogène stocké pouvant ensuite être utilisé durant le lancement du système selon différentes modalités : alimentation de la pile, ou sortie de processeur provisoirement inférieure au niveau requis par la demande de fonctionnement de la pile.
