Fuel Cell Technology for Vehicles 2002-2004

Fuel cell technology continues to attract a great deal of interest as an alternative power source to the internal combustion engine. Substantial technical progress has been made and the appearance of the first vehicles offered in the commercial market mark a significant step. However, broad application and the eventual success of fuel cell technology in vehicles remain elusive.

In this second edition of Fuel Cell Technology for Vehicles, the latest research and technological advances in fuel cell technology are examined via 48 SAE Technical Papers and several articles from the Journal of Power Sources, plus bibliographical data for nearly 200 documents published by SAE and other leading sources.

Although the major issues of fuel supply, cost of manufacture, vehicle architecture, and broad public acceptance of the technology remain, engineers are engaged with the issues of vehicle development, system design and control, and, increasingly, end-of-life issues. This technical research clearly and comprehensively demonstrates how the business of fuel cell development is maturing quickly and offers a recent perspective on this rapidly evolving technology.
