What is Fuel Cell??
Fuel Cell is a device (like Generator) that converts the Chemical Energy of Hydrogen(Fuel) and Oxygen(from Air) into Electricity while generating Heat & water as by Products.
Favorable Characteristics of Fuel Cell:
- High Conversion Efficiency (from fuel to electricity as there is no combustion process like Gasoline/Diesel Engine)
- No Toxic Emissions (water and heat as by products)
- Low Noise Levels (as there r no mechanical moving parts)
- System Scalability (few Watts to several Mega Watts)
- Low Maintenance (no wear and tear, no mechanical moving parts just a Chemical Reaction)
- High Operating Time
