Workshop on PEMFC Stack and Stack Component Testing
The German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Stack-Test consortium organize the International Workshop on 3rd and 4th of June 2014 in Stuttgart and the registration deadline has been extended until the 25th of Mai 2014.
Testing procedures for the validation and optimization of PEMFC stacks and stack components are of major interest for industry as well as academia and are not consistent so far. Therefore, a comparison of test results on different test objects and from different testing facilities is difficult. This fact is a drawback for the PEMFC research and complicates the task of bringing the PEMFC technology to the market. This workshop will bring together the international industry, research, and academic institutes presenting the latest progress in PEMFC testing procedures on the stack, single cell and component level. Therefore, a wide range of speakers will present testing procedures and their application towards the characterization PEMFC stacks and components.
The workshop program is scheduled including representatives from industry as well as academia: see pdf > Download.
Thereby, the workshop will emphasize the necessity of uniform test protocols for a more reliable comparison of test results and for the optimization of operating parameters. The availability of already existing test procedures as well as newly developed procedures will be highlighted.
