Does anyone have any hands on expierence with Hydrogen fuel cells used as the backup source on UPSs.
I don't know, I'm not a civil engineer.[email protected] said:Are there specific fire codes that have to be met for a US installation?
I'll assume we're discussing only proton-exchange membrance cells from now on. Yes, they can go bad, if the membrane is allowed to dry out, or if liquid water is injected into the cell.Do the fuel cells go bad?
Fuel cells are roughly 50-60% efficient.What Kind of heat load do they generate?
The only chemicals produced are pure water. On the other hand, some hydrogen can sneak out even from recirculating setups, so yes, you need hydrogen sensors and a good ventilation system.What is the product of the chemical reaction, and do the cells have to be placed in a well ventilated area?
Pro: efficiency.What is your experience and what are the pos and neg of fuel cells?
A wet cell is an ordinary Energizer battery. I don't think I really need to describe the difference.How do Wet Cells and Fuel cells compare to each other?
Ideally, none. In reality, it's probably the supporting apparatus that will need the most maintenance.What maintenance do the fuel cells require?
Most cells operate at about the 90 degree celsius mark.What temperature range do they need to kept in.
That's a complex question; the effect depends quite a bit on the geometry and design.How does temperature effect their discharge or does it?
