Fuel Cell Diagnostics
Fuel cell characterization by various diagnostic methods and understanding of the function and lifetime behavior of fuel cell components for PEFC and HTPEFC's is the vision and the mission of the fuel cell diagnostic activity. This encloses the ex-situ characterization, the in-situ performance and durability testing, as well as the numerical modeling of the processes. The diagnostic methods comprise impedance spectroscopy, local gas phase analytics, in-situ tomographic characterization, as well as locally resolved electrochemical experiments on various scales. Active area of sub cm² single cells up to several 100 cm² stacks for mobile applications can be tested.
