The scientists of ARCI (Advanced Research for Powder
Metallurgy and New Materials) recently developed PEMFC (Polymer Electrolyte
Membrane Fuel Cells).The technology is to be used to manage Natural
The PEMFC is a system with 10 KW capacity. They have operational
advantage to operate at low-temperature in decentralized systems of power
The technology was developed at Chennai centre of ARCI. The
system is to be used to operate early warning systems using phones, ethernet,
The technology is to act as power house to Emergency Operation
Centres. The Control Rooms that respond to disasters are now being altered as
EmergencyOperation Centres. Therefore, the technology has come in at the right
time. It provides immediate support during Golden Hour.
They operate using hydrogen gas and there is no necessity to use
grid power.The Fuel cell uses chemical energy to generate electricity. It
consists of 2 electrodes called anode and cathode.
