    • Analysis of droplet dynamics on the GDL surface of a PEM fuel cell cathode 

      Jarauta Arabí, Àlex (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2013-06-28)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      A fuel cell is an electrochemical device that has the ability to turn the chemical energy in a fuel directly into electricity with high e ciency. Inside the fuel cell, oxidation and reduction electrochemical reactions ...
    • Analysis of proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) design parameters by simulation using OpenFCST 

      Caballero Flores, David (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   University of Alberta
      Improving proton exchange membrane fuel cells technology, together with hy- drogen production and storage, can make these devices an important element in the energy transition puzzle. A multi-dimensional, non-isothermal, ...
    • Impact of PT loading on proton exchange membrane hydrogen fuel cells performance 

      Pérez Maronda, Xavier (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   University of Alberta
      With increasing use of renewable energies, such as photovoltaic, wind, biomass, thermosolar, geologic, appeared the challenge of the storage. If it is talking about the mobile devises, it is easy to see that it is necessary ...
    • Inkjet printing in polymer electrolyte membrane electrolysis 

      Bach Valls, Antoni (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / University of Alberta, 2016)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      In proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEFCs), the catalyst and electrolyte loading have been shown to have an important effect in the performance and efficiency of the device. On the contrary, literature analyzing ...
    • Numerical simulation of a cooling tower and its plume 

      Peris Alonso, Antonio (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2019-10-28)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Cooling tower design has been an active area of research for over 40 years with the goalof reduceing the visibility of their effluent water vapor plumes. Plume visibility occurs whenwater vapour leaving the tower is exposed ...
