Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Fuel cells and hydrogen storage technologies are vital in the global transition to sustainable energy. With a surge in green hydrogen production anticipated in the coming years, finding innovative applications for this eco-friendly energy carrier is essential. One of the most promising prospects is its seamless integration into fuel cell technology, celebrated for its simplicity, quiet operation, high efficiency, and modular design. Envisioning a world where hydrogen fuel cell vehicles seamlessly integrate with smart homes and cities is close. However, this vision is not without challenges, including modelling, control, infrastructure development, and cost optimisation.

Our Special Issue on "Advances in Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Storage Technologies" is set to showcase the latest breakthroughs in this field. We invite contributions on a wide spectrum of topics, including advanced control strategies, innovations in hydrogen fuel tank integration, optimising green hydrogen refuelling strategies, and various technologies in terms of hydrogen storage. We also encourage comprehensive review submissions on:

Fuel Cell Advancements: Highlighting the latest developments in fuel cell technology, such as improvements in membrane materials, catalysts, and fuel cell stack designs.

Hydrogen Storage Techniques Advances: Reviewing progress in various hydrogen storage methods, from small-scale solutions to large-scale storage, including hydrides, ammonia storage, compressed gas storage, and geological storage techniques.

This Special Issue is set to be a hub for the most recent advances in the theory, design, modelling, and applications within the realm of fuel cells and hydrogen storage. Share your research with us to contribute to the ongoing revolution towards a sustainable, hydrogen-powered future.

Your contributions are pivotal in shaping the future of clean energy. Join us in Energies at MDPI in advancing the frontiers of hydrogen-based technologies and energy storage solutions.

The aim of the research presented in the article is to use the Metalog family of probability distributions to assess the technical condition of traction battery packs from electric and hybrid vehicles. The description of the research object, which is a battery pack from a hybrid vehicle, will be provided. Then, a system for controlled charging and discharging of individual cells in a battery pack will be reviewed. It is an essential diagnostic and research device used to determine the capacity of individual cells. The capacity values of all battery cells will then be analyzed using the Metalog probability distribution family. The use of this tool allows us to determine the Probability Density Function for the entire battery pack. Based on this, the diagnostician is able to assess the technical condition of the tested package and decide on its further fate. It can be intended for repair, employed as a stationary energy storage facility, or used for disposal. The algorithm for assessing the technical condition of traction batteries proposed by the authors can be used in all battery packs regardless of the type of cells used and their energy capacity.
