Dimensionally Stable Membrane for High Pressure Electrolyzers
Utilizing high strength polymers with controlled pore dimensions as a support, a customized membrane electrode assembly (MEA) can be generated for NASA's electrolyzer stack that has optimized electrochemical performance with greatly improved mechanical properties enabling high pressure (>1000 psi) operation. The overall objective is to generate and test an optimized dimensionally stable membrane (DSM) for a lunar NASA application. This will be accomplished through four tasks; 1. Generation of DSM MEAs of various configurations; 2. Testing of these MEAs; 3. Modeling and fitting of test data to electrolyzer performance; 4. Use model to generate optimum 1000 psi Electrolyzer MEA and test.
