Fuelcell Tutorial Fuelcell Tutorial
Fuelcells are electrochemical power devices that directly convert the chemical energy of a fuel into electric power. From hydrogen fuel and air (oxygen), they produce electricity and water - the reverse of water electrolysis. While fuelcells share principles of operation with batteries, they differ in that the electrochemically active materials, hydrogen and oxygen, are stored or are available externally and are continuously supplied to the device rather than being stored in the electrodes.
