Title (EN) METHOD FOR OPERATING FUEL CELLS WITH PASSIVE REACTANT SUPPLY
(FR) PROCEDE DE FONCTIONNEMENT DE PILES A COMBUSTIBLE AVEC ALIMENTATION EN REACTIF PASSIF
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method for operating a passive, air-breathing fuel cell system is described. In one embodiment, the system comprises one or more fuel cells, and a closed fuel plenum connected to a fuel supply. In some embodiments of the method, the fuel cell cathodes are exposed to ambient air, and the fuel is supplied to the anodes via the fuel plenum at a pressure greater than that of the ambient air.
(FR)L’invention concerne un procédé de fonctionnement d’un système de piles à combustible passif et ouvert à l’air. Sous l’un de ses modes de réalisation, le système comprend une ou plusieurs piles à combustible ainsi qu’une chambre de distribution de combustible connectée à une alimentation en combustible. Selon certains modes de réalisation du procédé, les cathodes de la pile à combustible sont exposées à l’air ambiant et le combustible est fourni aux anodes via le réservoir de combustible, à une pression supérieure à celle de l’air ambiant.
