A High Performance Hydrogen/chlorine Fuel Cell for Space Power Applications
This article discusses the proton-exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) as a high power and energy density power source. The two systems H2/Cl2 and H2/O2 PEMFC systems were compared over a wide range of mission lifetimes. It has been shown that the development of a H2/Cl2 PEMFC could yield a system with power and energy densities inherently greater than currently available in H2/O2 PEMFC.
