Abstract
AN ADVANCED PROTON EXCHANGE MEMBRANE FUEL CELL SYSTEM IS PROPOSED TO PROVIDE PULSE POWER FOR A SUBMARINE ELECTROMAGNETIC LAUNCH SYSTEM. THE FUEL CELL SYSTEM, WHEN TOTALLY DEVELOPED, WILL PROVIDE 15,000 AMPERES AT 250 VDC (3,750 KW) FOR A PERIOD OF 1 SECOND. METHODS TO IMPROVE THE PERFORMANCE OF STATE-OF-THE-ART PROTON EXCHANGE MEMBRANE FUEL CELL SYSTEMS WILL BE INVESTIGATED. AREAS OF INVESTIGATION INCLUDE OPTIMIZED CATALYST, MEMBRANE, STACK CONFIGURATION AND OPERATING CONDITIONS.
