Hydrogen is poised to play a significant role in the world’s energy future. Fuel cells, in which electricity is generated when hydrogen and oxygen combine to form water, are an effective means for using green hydrogen as a renewable fuel in a range of sectors. Although abundant in nature, hydrogen rarely exists in its molecular state and must be extracted from various sources. Electrolyzers are an important mechanism for generating clean hydrogen, and detailed simulations of such devices will aid engineers in designing safe and efficient solutions to meet our energy needs. However, simulating fuel cells and electrolyzers is challenging due to the nature of the materials (e.g., narrow gas channels and the complex porous media of the catalysts and membranes) and the complicated physical phenomena that are involved (e.g., the coupled solution of multi-phase flow, electrochemistry, heat transfer, and phase changes). In this webinar, we will demonstrate how CONVERGE’s autonomous meshing capabilities and advanced physical models—such as the electric potential solver, multi-phase flow models, and phase change models—enable engineers to efficiently simulate and gain insight into fuel cells and electrolyzers.
