Abstract:

PRESENTLY AVAILABLE PORTABLE, 300 WATT POWER SOURCE TECHNOLOGY IS LIMITED TO BATTERIES, SOLAR CELLS AND GASOLINE ENGINES. GASOLINE ENGINES SUFFER FROM POOR EFFICIENCY, NOISE AND HIGH MAINTENANCE. TODAY, BATTERIES ALONE CAN PROVIDE RELIABLE POWER. WHILE ADVANCES IN THE LAST 20 YEARS HAVE INCREASED THE POWER DENSITIES OF BATTERIES, THEY ARE STILL LOW ENERGY DENSITY DEVICES NOT SUITABLE FOR PROLONGED OPERATION. AS DEVELOPMENTS IN PORTABLE ELECTRONIC DEVICES AND COMMUNICATIONS PROGRESS, THERE IS AN INCREASING NEED FOR MORE COMPACT, LIGHT WEIGHT SOURCES OF ELECTRIC POWER. THE COMPANY, AND COUNTRY, WHICH IS SUCCESSFUL IN FILLING THIS NEED WILL CLEARLY HAVE AN ECONOMIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL EDGE. ANALYTIC POWER PROPOSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADVANCED, LIGHTWEIGHT, ION-EXCHANGE HYDROGEN/AIR FUEL CELL STACK. THE DESIGN IS BASED ON OUR 25 WATT HYDRIDE SUPPLIED, FUEL CELL STACKS WHICH ARE CURRENTLY BEING TESTED AT OUR FACILITY. ANALYTIC POWER'S COMMERCIAL CUSTOMERS HAVE ALSO RECOGNIZED THE NEED FOR THE POWER SUPPLY WE PROPOSE, AND HAVE FUNDED ITS DEVELOPMENT FOR SEVERAL YEARS. THE POWER SUPPLIES REQUIRE IMPROVEMENT IN HEAT AND WATER MANAGEMENT TO BE COMMERCIALLY FEASIBLE. OUR PROPOSED PHASE I PROGRAM WILL IDENTIFY AN OPTIMUM CELL STRUCTURE, STACK DESIGN, AND SYSTEMS FOR HEAT AND WATER MANAGEMENT FOR A PHASE II PROTOTYPE.
