The institute performs both design engineering and electrochemical modelling of fuel cell components, stacks and systems with commercial and in-house simulation methods. Crucial verifications of simulation results are carried out by means of experiments under realistic conditions using hardware that provides important information. The investigations available range from microscopic processes such as water distribution in gas diffusion systems (including MPL) and catalyst layers (Monte Carlo modelling (MC)) and macroscopic processes (CFD and FEM simulations) through to the design of complete systems (IPSE-Pro, Matlab-Simulink).
