This project endeavors to develop new corrosion-resistant catalyst supports, and new techniques to catalyse those supports. To this end,
- Porous bipolar plates will be developed and integrated along with the catalysts within a fuel cell.
- The materials will be tested to assess their performance and longevity.
- X-ray tomography and other imaging techniques will be used to assess the performance of the materials under real operating conditions.
- Information from these tests will enable the development of a methodological framework to simulate the performance of the fuel cells. This framework will then be used to build more efficient control strategies for higher performance fuel cell systems.
