Ignoring heat inertia impairs accuracy of determination of activation energy in thermal analysis

This paper critically analyzes the traditional method of kinetic determination of activation energy by sectioning the recorded differential thermal analysis peak area. This procedure is incorrect because it misses the impact of thermal inertia, which changes the shape of the peak's base&...

On/off cycling test of low-temperature PEM fuel cell at fully humidified conditions

Accelerated stress testing is one of the most used approaches to characterize the performance and the degradation of the membrane electrode assembly (MEA) in low-temperature hydrogen polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC). A standard JRC on/off testing procedure was used to cha...
