Title:
FUEL CELL SYSTEM
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2018010844
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:
PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To enable, in a fuel cell system which uses a hydrogen tank and a hydrogen storage material as a hydrogen source, the temperature of a fuel cell to be kept at an appropriate temperature without using a large cooling device, and also to enable hydrogen to be reversibly stored and discharged without using an external heat source and a cooling source .SOLUTION: The fuel cell system 10 comprises: a plurality of reactors 12 containing a hydrogen storage material; a hydrogen tank 14 for storing a hydrogen gas; a fuel cell 16; a cooling device 18 for discharging exhaust heat from the reactor 12 or the fuel cell 16 to the outside; a hydrogen gas line 30 which can switch a hydrogen gas supply path between the reactor 12, the hydrogen tank 14, and the fuel cell 16; a heat exchange line 40 which can switch a heat exchange medium circulation path between the reactor 12, the fuel cell 16, and the cooling device 18; and a control mechanism which switches the hydrogen gas supply path and the heat exchange medium circulation path.SELECTED DRAWING: Figure 1
