Hydrogen Fuel Cell


Hydrogen Fuel Cell is an electrochemical process whereby Hydrogen & Oxygen are used to produce electrical energy. Bipolar plates in this process are used as a delivery system for the fuel (Hydrogen) and an exit for the biproduct, which is H20. As the process generates a lot of heat, flow-fields are designed in the bipolar plates on the reverse side to pass water across the surface to cool the plates down and vent gasses created during the process. The Hydrogen is introduced on the Anode side, moving Hydrogen gasses to the Catalyst which oxidizes the hydrogen separating the H2 into Protons and Electrons. The positive H+ protons will pass through the PEM to mix with the Oxygen to eventually produce the biproduct which is H20 (water) when the electron circuit is completed within the fuel cell. The separated electrons can complete the circuit by passing from the Anode to the Cathode externally in the form of Electrical Energy.
