Abstract Both efficiency and mass are important characteristics of an energy storage system, particularly for aerospace applications. This paper reports the results of a trade-off analysis conducted to optimize the design of regenerative fuel cell systems used in conjunction with a PV array. The operating efficiency of both the fuel cell and electrolyzer may be traded against the stack mass, by selecting a higher or lower nominal cell potential, thus operating at higher or lower current density… CONTINUE READING
