Recent years have seen a reawakened interest in hydrogen fuel cell and water electrolyzer technology, with an important economical driver being the continuously lowered costs for intermittent renewal electricity generation from wind and solar.

Modeling and simulation are important tools in the design and development of these electrochemical systems.

Version 5.6 of COMSOL Multiphysics® introduces the new Fuel Cell & Electrolyzer Module. The new module brings tailor-made tools for modeling fuel cells and electrolyzers.

This webinar will present the capabilities of the new module, including:
- Gas-diffusion electrodes
- Electrode reactions
- Built-in thermodynamics
- Two-phase flow
- Mass and momentum transfer in porous media
- Heat transfer in porous media
- Simulations of steady-state polarization plots and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS)

Presented by:

  • Henrik Ekström , Technology Manager for Electrochemistry, COMSOL
