Fuel Cell Fundamentals is an introductory-level textbook covering the basic science and engineering behind fuel cell technology. Focusing on the fundamentals, it 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. Emphasis is placed on the founding scientific principles that govern fuel cell operations. Designed to be accessible to fuel cell beginners, it 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: The first (and largest part), "Fuel Cell Principles" focuses on basic fuel cell physics. The second part: "Fuel Cell Technology" provides a brief discussion of the practical applications of fuel cell technology. Fuel Cell Fundamentals provides examples, problems, and pedagogy for classroom use. A solutions manual is available.

From the Back Cover:

A unique presentation of the basic science and engineering behind fuel cells

Fuel Cell Fundamentals is an accessible, introductory book that thoroughly covers the basic science and engineering behind fuel cell technology. Emphasizing the founding scientific principles that govern fuel cell operations, it 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.

Fuel Cell Fundamentals assumes no prior knowledge of fuel cells or electrochemistry and is accessible to fuel cell beginners and any engineering or science major with a background in calculus, basic physics, and elementary thermodynamics. It's conveniently divided into two parts:

  • Part I: Fuel Cell Principles—focuses on basic fuel cell physics, including illustrated diagrams, examples, text boxes, and review questions that foster an intuitive understanding of fuel cells
  • Part II: Fuel Cell Technology—presents a discussion of the practical applications of fuel cell technology, including valuable information on selecting the best fuel cell for a given application and how to design a complete system
