About This Topic
Fuel cells are very efficient electrical and thermal energy generation elements. In recent times a lot of research has been done in this area both in the field of materials and structures. Another important area is the obtaining of modeling and calibration methods, as well as the design of the control systems or the integration of fuel cells in larger energy systems.
In this issue, we describe the main contributions in the field of modeling, control and energy management of fuel cell systems.
