- revealing the state of health of fuel cells

Mid-summer, June 23-24 2009 in Trondheim, Norway

As part of the IPHE-acknowledged EU-project FCTEDI *, we would like to invite you to an international symposium on diagnostic tools for fuel cell technologies. The symposium aims at gathering researchers and developers from the fuel cell area and technical experts from measurement equipment manufacturers to:

  • discuss today’s available diagnostics tools for PEMFCs, SOFCs and MCFCs
  • share knowledge of and experience with state-of-the-art experimental methods and
  • identify requirements for further development of equipment and methods

The symposium will thus provide for enhanced insight into fuel cell degradation issues and how to counteract these to ensure longer lifetime and more reliable fuel cell operation.

Three particular topics will be focussed in this symposium:

  • PEMFC online diagnostic
  • SOFC materials and micro-structural issues
  • MCFC diagnostics - experimental and real case issues

* FCTEDI - Fuel Cell Testing and Dissemination, EU-project 2007-2009


Trondheim is a city where the old meets the new. The city was founded by Viking King Olav Tryggvason in 997, and occupies a special place in Norwegian culture and history.



At the area outside the session halls, there will be stands available to present relevant measurement equipment and systems. Each stand includes a table (60x160 cm2), two poster walls and electric power supply connections. The fee for one stand is € 1000 and includes the registration fee for one person for the whole symposium.
