  • Patent number: 6972159
    Abstract: A fuel-cell system, in particular for a vehicle, has a device for supplying the operating agents for a fuel cell and an electrical energy accumulator. The energy accumulator is composed of a battery and of an intermediate charge store which has a lower internal resistance than the battery. A switch is provided in the electrical connection between the energy accumulator and the fuel cell.

  • Publication number: 20030228504
    Abstract: In a method for operating a fuel cell system containing at least one discontinuously operated fuel cell the anode of the fuel cell system is supplied with a fuel of nearly pure hydrogen. The nearly pure hydrogen contains only small proportions of carbon monoxide and, possibly, inert components. After shutting down the fuel cell, an oxidizing agent is fed into the region of the anode of the fuel cell, for example, in a manner integrated into a shut-down cycle.

  • Patent number: 6646413
    Abstract: A fuel cell system includes a fuel cell unit having an anode side and a cathode side, anode-side feeding and outflow lines for the supply of fuel and removal of anode-side exhaust, and cathode-side feeding and outflow lines for the supply of oxygen and removal of cathode-side exhaust. The fuel cell system also includes means for electrically switching the fuel cell unit on and off depending on the available quantity of fuel.

  • Publication number: 20030193311
    Abstract: A system and a method are used for charging a battery which is connected to intermittently operated devices for providing power required for charging, such as an engine-driven generator in a motor vehicle, for example. In order to provide the battery with additional charge, a fuel cell system is also used. The battery may be kept at a minimum specified state of charge, for example, by the fuel cell system. Discharge by stand-by currents or leakage currents may be compensated or maintenance charge may be provided to the approximately fully charged battery to extend its service life.
