    History of fuel cells according to Vladimir S. Bagotsky (2012) Luigi Galvani (1737-1798) In 1791, the Italian physiologist Luigi Galvani discovered that the muscle contractions, similar to the discharged of a Leyden charge, will occur when two metals touch the nerve of a frog. Alexandro Volta (1745-1827) In 1800, Alexandro Volta designed a device called Volta pile that originated from the phenomenon discovered by Galvani. The Volta pile is the prototype of electrochemical power sources such as battery

    the combustion process. Technology has developed a solution by utilizing the concept of hydrogen fuel cells. As the years have passed, there has been continuous development on automotive fuel cells and now it has come close to mass production of these vehicles. The main problem is the continued development of hydrogen fuel cells and their infrastructure may not be worth the cost. Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (fcvs) have not been around for long, but over the past decade that have developed into a

    This report shows a comparison between hydrogen fuel cell plug-in hybrid vehicles (FCHEV) and battery (BEV) and hydrogen fuel cell (FCEV) electric vehicles. Comparing infrastructure and technology requirements along with the lifecycle cost of the drivetrain (the main components that generate power and deliver it to the road surface) over 100k miles taking fuel costs and capital costs into consideration. This can then be compared to a conventional petrol-fuelled internal combustion engine (ICE) drivetrain

    of LSF increases, and 1350oC scaffold has a much lower ohmic resistance than the 1400oC one. A pure YSZ cell infiltrated with 35 wt% LSCF was used as reference and by comparing it with a cell composed of 70:30 LSF-YSZ scaffold calcined at 1350oC with one cycle of LSCF infiltration, a comparable cell performance both in ohmic and non-ohmic parts was achieved. Introduction In solid-oxide fuel cells (SOFC), the typical cathodes with the best performance are usually composites of the electrolyte oxide
