Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC)/ Ultracapacitor (UC) Powered Laptop
Microsoft™ and FuelCell Energy Inc. have created a joint venture to build a fuel cell powered data center in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The primary challenge, inherent to the project, is the rapid manner with which a data center's power demand changes; coupled with the much slower transient behavior of the fuel cell's power production. The main goal of ProCell Engineering, an Energy Systems Engineering Senior Design team, is to produce a scaled version of the Cheyenne data center project. ProCell utilizes ultracapacitors to provide the supplemental power during abrupt increases in power demand while the ...
