Design of a Fuel Processor System for Generating Hydrogen for Automotive Applications
Kolavennu, Panini K.; Telotte, John C.; Palanki, Srinivas
Chemical Engineering Education, v40 n3 Sum 2006
The objective of this paper is to design a train of tubular reactors that use a methane feed to produce hydrogen of the desired purity so that it can be utilized by a fuel cell for automotive applications. Reaction engineering principles, which are typically covered at the undergraduate level, are utilized to design this reactor train. It is shown that the design equations can be solved via numerical integration in MATLAB as well as in the process simulator CHEMCAD.
