FCS components test bench procedures

This work was to identify criteria and methods for evaluating fuel cell components in order to get a common platform for evaluating components within their fields. Useful test procedures are vital in order to be able to test fuel cell components in an accurate way and to use the same definitions of measures such as efficiency and power density when benchmarking components. Test procedures were set-up for the following components: fuel processors, polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PEFC) stacks and compressor-expander units. They define how the measurement and tests shall be performed also in order to achieve useful data for modelling.
