Training equipment for the study of the operation and characteristics of fuel cells. The proposal is based on a small panel on which a real proton exchange membrane (PEM) hydrogen fuel cell system is being implemented, together with a catchment system and monitoring of variables controlled from the PC.
The system makes it possible to:
- Discover the technology of hydrogen fuel cells, their advantages and disadvantages, and their energetic possibilities.
- Become familiar with the elements which make up a fuel cell system and the role played by each one.
- Execute the necessary operations in order to start up a hydrogen fuel cell, following the relevant security measures and instructions at all times when handling the hydrogen required for its operation.
- Assess, in a practical and simple manner, the technical characteristics and provisions of a fuel cell system via data acquisition and the subsequent analysis of the performed tests and measurements.
