Guest Editors are inviting submissions to a Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of “Development of Advanced Models for Analysis and Simulation of Fuel Cells”. To address the requirements on shorter product development cycles and reduced development costs, while striving to approach engineering limits in power density, efficiency, service life and safety, it is necessary to rely on advanced simulation models in the development process of fuel cells, their components, and fuel-cell-based systems. Likewise, simulation models are indispensable for the analysis of fuel cells and interpreting highly complex intertwined processes inherent to this type of electrochemical devices. Advanced models are further key elements of precise online monitoring units, which are crucial to ensure highly efficient, durable, and safe operation of fuel-cell-based systems.
To provide an answer to these challenges, this Special Issue will focus on advanced models for the analysis and simulation of fuel cells that cover all types of fuel cells and all application areas of models from detailed material modeling over fuel cell performance and degradation modeling to models applied in analysis, control, and fault diagnostic applications. Thus, this Special Issue covers the entire spectrum of applications of advanced models comprising: concept layout; material, component, and system design; component and system testing and analysis; as well as online monitoring, fault diagnostics, and predictive maintenance. Topics of interest for publication include but are not limited to:
- All types of fuel cells, their components, and fuel-cell-based systems;
- Atomistic models;
- Mesoscopic models;
- Continuum models;
- Multiscale models;
- Scale bridging approaches and methodologies;
- Reduced dimensionality models;
- Models for interpreting EIS spectra;
- Observer (SoX), online monitoring and control oriented models;
- Advanced model parametrization tools;
- Model based fault diagnostics;
- Model based predictive maintenance.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
