Tasks

The project CISTEM comprises the following key points:

  • Concept and testing of large area pressurized HT-PEM FC for large scale systems;
  • Improvement of the HT-PEM FC technology for performance and lifetime;
  • Optimization of the effect of cathode air enrichment by pure oxygen for efficiency;
  • Development and integration of a modular designed natural gas reformer;
  • Improved stack design for modular concept approach;
  • Modular CHP system design for a 100 kWel CHP unit based on 4 kWel units;
  • Proof of concept for the modular CHP system design for a 100 kWel CHP unit based on 4 kWel units using hardware in the loop test bench;       
  • System modeling provides detailed specifications for the CHP system numbering - up from 8 kWel up to 100 kWel;      
  • General design rules for efficient operation of a modular HT-PEM based CHP system using fuel flexible conditions with respect to smart grid applications.
