Construction Of Fuel Cell And It's Working Presentation

Introduction to Fuel Cell
Fuel cell is an electrochemical device that converts chemical energy from a fuel and an oxidant into electrical energy.

It consists of three main components: anode, cathode, and electrolyte.

Fuel cells are efficient, clean, and quiet sources of power.

Construction of a Fuel Cell
Anode: The anode is the negative electrode where the fuel (often hydrogen) is oxidized, releasing electrons.

Cathode: The cathode is the positive electrode where the oxidant (such as oxygen) is reduced by accepting electrons.

Electrolyte: The electrolyte separates the anode and cathode and allows ions to move between them while preventing the mixing of fuel and oxidant.

Working of a Fuel Cell
Fuel cell operation involves four main steps: fuel input, electrochemical reaction, electron flow, and power output.

Fuel (hydrogen) is supplied to the anode, where it is split into protons (H+) and electrons (e-).

Protons pass through the electrolyte to the cathode, while electrons travel through an external circuit, creating an electric current.

Advantages of Fuel Cells
High efficiency: Fuel cells can achieve efficiency levels of up to 60%, significantly higher than traditional combustion-based systems.

Environmentally friendly: Fuel cells produce electricity without combustion, resulting in reduced emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases.

Versatile applications: Fuel cells can be used in various sectors, including transportation, stationary power generation, and portable devices. (Note: This is a brief overview of the topic. For a more in-depth understanding, additional slides and information can be added.)
