From the Back Cover:

A new edition of an essential introduction to the science and engineering behind fuel cells

As the search for alternative energy technologies heats up, no topic is hotter than fuel cells. Updating its successful first edition, Fuel Cell Fundamentals, Second Edition gives advanced undergraduate and beginning level graduate students an important introduction to the basic science and engineering behind fuel cell technology. Emphasizing the foundational scientific principles that apply to any fuel cell type or technology, the text provides straightforward descriptions of how fuel cells work, why they offer the potential for high efficiency, and how their unique advantages can best be used.

Designed to be accessible to fuel cell beginners, the text is suitable for any engineering or science major with a background in calculus, basic physics, and elementary thermodynamics. The book is divided in two parts:

Part I: Fuel Cell Principles is devoted to basic fuel cell physics. Illustrated diagrams, examples, text boxes, and homework questions are all designed to impart a unified, intuitive understanding of fuel cells.

Part II: Fuel Cell Technology has been significantly enlarged for this Second Edition. In this section you will find out how to select the right fuel cell for a given application and how to design a complete system. Finally, you will learn how to assess the potential environmental impact of fuel cell technology.

Further enhancing this new edition are updated and improved examples, problems, and pedagogy for classroom use.
