Optimal parameter design for improved performance of ceramic fuel cells

Mentor: Prof. Kate Smith-Miles, Monash University
Intern: Dr Laura Villanova, Monash University
Industry Partner: Dr Michael Kah, Ceramic Fuel Cells Limited
Project Duration: January to April 2011

Ceramic Fuel Cells Limited design and manufacture a fuel cell product that generates electricity from electrochemical reactions based on a supply of air and natural gas. This project examined the relationships between system performance and manufacturing data, suggest new ways to analyze existing data and identify additional data that might be collected to further enhance the reliability and life of fuel cells.
