Description: Fuel Cell Engines is an introduction to the fundamental principles of electrochemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, material science and transport applied specifically to fuel cells. It covers scientific fundamentals and provides a basic understanding that enables proper technical decision-making. The fundamentals are applicable to all fuel cell systems, but special focus is given to polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells.
