Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles In S

  1. 1. Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles Prepared by: Anthony M. Taylor
  2. 2. Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles <ul><li>Introduction </li></ul><ul><li>Purpose </li></ul><ul><li>Research and Developement </li></ul><ul><li>How does it work? </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusion </li></ul>
  3. 3. Introduction: <ul><li>The increase in petroleum demand and Golbal warming issues, has the Dept.of Energy and Researchers looking to other alternative fuels as resources of power. They predict that by 2030 the Gobal petroleum and natural gas demand will increase by 30%. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Percentage of usages
  5. 5. Purpose: <ul><li>The purpose of this study is to educate the general public about the benefits of using Hydrogen fuel cells as a source of power. Focusing primarily on it's usage in our personal automobiles and public transit systems. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Research & Developement <ul><li>The Center for Hydrogen Research, was opened in Aiken, South Carolina the early part of 2006. This 60,000sq ft laboratory is dedicated to hydrogen research. </li></ul><ul><li>The Hydrogen powered Silverado is a product of this research. Which gets 200 miles hwy using 10.5 gals of hydrogen gas. ( pictured in upcoming slides ) </li></ul><ul><li>The fuel substation is also a product of this facility. ( pictured in the upcoming slides ) </li></ul>
  7. 8. Pure hydrogen gas operated vehicle
  8. 9. Hydrogen gas cylinders
  9. 10. Research & Developement ( Continue ) <ul><li>The use of Hydrogen Fuel Cells is becoming accepted in today's industry. </li></ul><ul><li>Bridgestone /Firestone Tire Co. is a local plant that converted 43 fork lifts to hydrogen fuel cell power at their Graniteville tire plant. ( pictured in upcoming slides ) </li></ul>
  10. 13. How does it work? <ul><li>The use of artifical light is being use to charge the fuel cells. </li></ul><ul><li>Basically, to start electrolysis a small amount of current is needed to warm up the (PEMFC) </li></ul><ul><li>The electrolysis is what causes the splitting of hydrogen & Oxygen. </li></ul>Artifical light Solar panel Fuel cell
  11. 14. How does it work? <ul><li>A Solar panel sends an electrical charge to the fuel cells which causes a chemical reaction that creates electrical energy as the atoms Hydrogen and Oxygen are being separated.( This process is called Electrolysis.) </li></ul>Solar panel Fuel cell Water chamber Hydro-power
  12. 15. How does it work? <ul><li>The fuel cell in this model is being electrically charge by two AA batteries. </li></ul><ul><li>It takes only minutes to produce electrical energy after the initial charge. </li></ul>Electric motor Water chambers Fuel cell
  13. 16. Conclusion <ul><li>The Department of Engergy,and Savannah River National Laboratories are committed to Hydrogen Fuel Cell research. Which will impact our lives significantly by reducing the dependance on foreign oil, lessen air pollutants and toxic emmissions which contribute dramatically to global warming. In fact by using Hydrogen Fuel Cells as an alternative fuel source it will actually assist in the repair of the ozone layer. </li></ul>
