Fuel cells are direct energy conversion devices which produce direct current electrical power. They are being considered for use in many modern power applications such as spacecraft, vehicular propulsion, and general purpose electrical power. The hydrazine-oxygen fuel cell is one of several types, and its operation is described. Some parameters of the chemical inputs, such as oxygen source pressure, are experimentally tested and discussed as candidates for controlling the output voltage. A control parameter is selected, and a mathematical model of the fuel cell is developed. A Fuel Cell Research System, designed and constructed by the author, is described and operating instructions are presented.
