Operating principle of Fuel Cells

A fuel cell is an alternative power generator. It transforms chemical energy into electrical energy directly, with no intermediate steps, no moving parts, and with no significant loss in energy, making it a particularly efficient source of power. A huge amount of patented innovation has gone into making fuel cells a marvel of miniaturization that are lightweight, but high-powered & long-lasting performers. These fuel cells lead the field in fuel cell systems for off-grid power & mobile applications for Mission Critical Communication / IT/ Optronics/ Sensors/ Auxilary Power etc.

How do fuel cells work?

Fuel cells charge batteries fully automatically. The integrated charge controller permanently monitors the charge level of batteries. When the battery voltage drops below a predefined level, the fuel cell starts automatically and recharges the battery. Once the battery is charged, it switches off again. This results in reliable, continuous power, reduces the amount of batteries needed, and extends the lifetime of the batteries since deep discharge damages are prevented. Via an inverter, you can also operate 230 V devices.

Fuel cells use liquid fuel

These Fuel cells use liquid fuel DMFC (Direct Methanol Fuel Cell) technology which transforms methanol directly into electrical current. The liquid methanol can be easily transported anywhere using fuel cartridges.

Fuel cells and the hybrid principle

Fuel cells also work in hybrid with other power generators. For example, if a fuel cell is connected to an application that also has solar to it, the fuel cell only charges the battery if solar does not deliver enough energy – due to bad weather.
