Abstract

In this study a mathematical model is developed and evaluated in order to describe an experimental methanol fuel processor (a combination of autothermal reformer and preferential oxidation reactor) for the production of hydrogen to be used it as the main fuel of a Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) for the generation of 1kW electrical power. This integrated system has been studied from a theoretical and an experimental point of view where different parameters were studied in order to maximize hydrogen production and keep in a low content carbon monoxide. The main variables that are of concern in this study, are the temperature and the concentrations of the reactants and products as a function of the length of the reactors. By utilizing kinetic expressions developed for this catalytic system, the results of the simulations are found in good agreement with the results obtained from the experimental implementation.
