Alkaline RFC Space Station prototype - 'Next step Space Station'. [Regenerative Fuel Cells]
Author and Affiliation:
Hackler, I. M.(NASA Johnson Space Center, Houston, TX, United States)
Abstract: The regenerative fuel cell, a candidate technology for the Space Station's energy storage system, is described. An advanced development program was initiated to design, manufacture, and integrate a regenerative fuel cell Space Station prototype (RFC SSP). The RFC SSP incorporates long-life fuel cell technology, increased cell area for the fuel cells, and high voltage cell stacks for both units. The RFC SSP's potential for integration with the Space Station's life support and propulsion systems is discussed.
