Fuel Cell Library – Release 1.5

Version 1.5 was released 2017-06-02.

Version 1.5 of the Fuel Cell library has focused on improving the user-friendliness. The newrelease has extended the capabilities of the composition visualizers to enable the option to show flow per species including both mass and mole based units. With this newfunctionality, it is easy to get an overview of the flow streams in the system. This is especially useful when visualizing diffusion flow through a membrane. There has also been
a big improvement on the examples where a large part of the examples visualize system performance indicators such as fuel utilization, heat release and temperature and concentration profiles. This makes it easy to quickly get an overview of the system characteristics.

Examples of improvements and new features:

  • Flow substance visualizers to show the flow composition in terms of mass and mole fractions. A user can conveniently switch between flow or fraction sensor types where both mass and mole based units are supported.
  • Predefined preferential oxidation reactor with a new output variable for the CO concentration in ppm. This makes it easy to directly compare against CO limits that are specified in ppm.
  • Example models that visualize important system indicators, to quickly get an overview of the system characteristics
  • Top-level propagation of composition design parameters in DesignProx model.

Conversion of user libraries:
