Fuel cell and Combustion Technology
Fuel cells are a remarkable power source. They store energy in two naturally occurring elements i.e., oxygen and hydrogen, and form a single waste product i.e., pure water. Refueling a fuel cell means providing more hydrogen and oxygen. Fuel cells work like a battery, but they do not need electrical recharging. Once those chemicals expire, the battery dies. On the other hand, a fuel cell receives the chemicals, it uses from the outside; so that, it won’t run out. Fuel cells can generate power almost indefinitely if they have fuel to use. Each fuel cell has two electrodes, one negative, called the cathode, and one positive, called the anode. These are detached by an electrolyte barrier. Oxygen goes to the cathode side, while Fuel goes to the anode side. When both chemicals hit the electrolyte fence, they react, torn apart their electrons, and produce an electric current.
