Description

This book focuses on the new energy conversion technologies based on both electrolyte and electrolyte-free fuel cells, from advanced novel ceria-based composite electrolyte low temperature solid oxide fuel cells, to non-electrolyte fuel cell as advanced fuel-to-electricity conversion technology. It gives not only a basic introduction and understanding of conventional fuel cell principle, but also an updated view of the most recent developments in this field.
