Hornburg Gerald: Fuel cell system. Daimler, Ford Global Technologies, Hornburg Gerald, KOCHER Klaus Peter, July 2, 2009: WO/2009/080161

In a fuel cell system (10), the transfer of thermal energy between individual components is deliberately promoted, in particular between the fuel cell stack (12) and the anode unit (14). In this way icing is prevented, since as a result of the thermal coupling no local heat sinks, on which water is ...
