Starting as soon as possible, we offer you an exciting
Master Thesis - Modeling, parameter estimation and model validation of a structure model for porous transport layers
At the Institute of Energy and Climate Research - Electrochemical Process Engineering (IEK-14), with more than 20 years of experience in electrochemical energy conversion, we are at the forefront of innovative solutions for clean and sustainable energy conversion devices. In collaboration with national and international partners from research and industry, we develop solutions for mobile, portable and stationary applications and research the use of liquid energy carriers as fuels as well as their efficient and environmentally friendly production and use. Hydrogen is considered the best alternative to fossil fuels; if it is generated with renewable electricity, it is an excellent energy carrier that can be used and converted without carbon dioxide emissions. Low-temperature water electrolysis is considered the preferred route for the large-scale production of hydrogen. However, the efficiency of water electrolysis depends on the proper design of any components, one of them is the porous transport layer and the understanding of its micro-structure.
