Abstract: PEM (Polymer Electrolyte Membrane) fuel cells have the potential to reduce our energy use, pollutant emissions, and dependence on fossil fuels. In the past decade, si
gnificant advances have been achieved for commercializing the technology. For example, several PEM fuel cell buses are currently rated at the technical readiness stage of full-scale validation in realistic driving environments, and have met or closely met the ultimate 25,000 hours target set by the U.S. Department of Energy. So far, Toyota has sold more than 4,000 Mirai PEM fuel cell vehicles (FCVs). Over 30 hydrogen gas stations are being operated throughout the U.S. and over 60 in Germany.
In this talk, I will present current technological status of PEM fuel cells and their material and fundamental aspects of R&D that the UC Irvine makes original contributions, including
Flow field design and control in bipolar plates;
Dynamic design and control;
Gas diffusion material design and fundamentals;
Catalyst layer design and fundamentals.
Bio：Yun Wang received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mechanics and Engineering Science from Peking University in 1998 and 2001, respectively. He went to the Pennsylvania State University where he received his Ph.D degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2006. Wang joined the MAE (Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering) faculty at the University of California, Irvine in 2006. Wang has produced over 70 publications in PEM fuel cell and Li-air battery, including a book on PEM Fuel Cell Water and Thermal Management Fundamentals in 2013 and a PEM fuel cell review paper in 2011 (which has been cited over 2,150 google scholar times). He received a few awards, including the prestigious Distinguished President's Award and Outstanding Educator Award from Orange County Engineering Council, the Seasky Scholarship from Dalian University of Technology, China, and the 2011-2012 Applied Energy Certificate of Excellence: Most Downloaded Authors. Several of his seminal works are highly cited in the major fuel cell journals. His 45 journal papers published in 2005-17 have been cited over 5,100 times. Scopus (last access on 10/3/2018) shows one first-authored paper is the most cited in the history of Applied Energy since 1975 (among 12,590 papers). Wang served as Track chair/co-chair, session chair/co-chair, conference chair and committee member for many international conferences of fuel cells, thermal energy, and engineering. Wang is currently Professor at the UC Irvine and ASME fellow.
