Hydrogen Fuel Cell: Effect of Altitude on Energy Output
Division:Health Sciences / Automotive
Region:Chinook Country
City:Calgary, AB
School:Red Deer Lake School
Abstract:This project studied the effects of altitude on hydrogen fuel cell energy output. A Proton Exchange Membrane fuel cell was tested at different pressures to simulate altitude. The results showed that increasing atmospheric pressure resulted in increased energy output. Changing temperature did not have an effect on the fuel cell. This research demonstrates that a hydrogen fuel cell can operate almost anywhere in the world.
