Fuel Cell Library - Release Information

Release notes for version 1.3.2 of the Fuel Cell Library. This is a maintenance release. Previous library version was 1.3.1

Conversion of user libraries

No conversion is needed for this release.

Library dependencies

Fuel Cell Library 1.3.2 is based on Modelon Base Library 2.3 and Modelica Standard Library 3.2.1.

The library has been tested with:

  • Dymola 2016 FD01
  • Dymola 2016

[Translate to Japanese:] Available for: Dymola 2016

Dependencies: Modelon Base Library 2.0


  • Improved structure of FuelCell.Media.ReactionGas.ReactionProperties for increased readability. p, T, and X are now inputs.
  • Added possibility to parameterize flow and temperature boundaries in
  • FuelCell.Sources with enthalpy instead of temperature. Default behavior is the same as in earlier versions, i.e. parameterization with temperature.
  • The Index record is no longer part of FuelCell.Media.Templates.ReactionGas, it is replaced by the use of the substanceIndexVector function in media.
  • Moved gibbsReactionEnergy function to ReactionGas template.
  • Improved Modelica compliance.

Conversion of user libraries

  • Automatic conversion of user libraries from version 1.3 is supported using the included conversion script.




[Translate to Japanese:] Available for: Dymola 2014 FD01

Dependencies: Modelica Standard Library Version: 3.2.1 and Modelon Base Library 1.9

Conversion: None since version 1.2 is the first official release of the Fuel Cell Library.

  • The Fuel Cell Library is targeted towards modeling, analysis and control development of fuel-cell systems
  • The library contains predefined reactors for fuel preprocessing and internal reforming, and predefined stack structures for both Solid Oxide (SOFC) and Proton Exchange Membrane (PEMFC) fuel cells. 
  • Easy to adapt stack and reactor templates to new structures 
  • Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) and Proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) models
  • Predefined reactors for fuel pre-processing and internal stack reforming 
  • Reactions calculated by various approaches 
  • Handles reformate and other ideal gas mixtures 
  • Support for condensation
