Fuel Cell

Scroll Prev Top Next More


A fuel cell converts chemical fuel to electricity through a chemical reaction in which the fuel is oxidized and electricity is generated. You can model a fuel cell with the generator component in HOMER. For example, to model a hydrogen fuel cell, add a Generator Component, set the fuel to stored hydrogen, and adjust the fuel curve to match the fuel cell's specifications.

The Homer Support site has a searchable knowledgebase and additional support options. HOMER Online contains the latest information on model updates, as well as sample files, resource data, and contact information. ©2017 HOMER Energy, LLC
