The Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics at DLR has over 270 employees conducting research in the field of efficient and resource-saving energy storage and next-generation energy conversion technologies. The department Computational Electrochemistry is involved, among other things, in the modeling and simulation of polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEMFC).
PEMFCs are a promising, environmentally friendly alternative to the internal combustion engine, especially for heavy-duty applications. However, high cost and limited lifetime remain challenges for this technology. In order to develop long-lasting and high-performance cells, the aging processes and their dependencies on the materials used must be better understood. Within the framework of an European project, multiscale models are to be developed which can describe the performance-limiting processes as well as the degradation processes and thus enable simulation-based development of improved fuel cells.
