This book focuses on the methods of storage commonly used in
hybrid systems.After an introductory chapter reviewing the basics
of electrochemistry, Chapter 2 is given over to the storage of
electricity in the form of hydrogen. Once hydrogen has been made,
we have to be able to convert it back into electricity on demand.
This can be done with another energy converter: a fuel cell, the
subject of Chapter 3. Such a system is unable to deliver
significant dynamics in terms of storage and release of electricity
and needs to be supplemented with another solution: a detailed
study of supercapacitors is provided in Chapter 4.While the storage
systems touched upon in the previous three chapters (hydrogen
batteries and supercapacitors) both exhibit advantageous
characteristics, at present they are still relatively costly. Thus,
the days of the electrochemical accumulator by no means appear to
be numbered just yet. This will therefore be the topic of Chapter
5. Finally, on the basis of the elements laid down in the previous
chapters, Chapter 6 will focus on electrical hybridization of these
storage systems, with a view to enhancing the performance (in terms
of energy, lifetime, cost, etc.) of the newly formed system.Aimed
at an audience of researchers, industrialists, academics, teachers
and students, many exercises, along with corrected solutions, are
provided throughout the book.
