D.1.1 – Living work plan and risk register established
For efficient management of the project and to ensure that the project adheres to its deliverable and timeline, a living work plan has been established. This plan includes documents to be monthly updated containing the project timeline for tasks and deliverables. A risk register has also been established and will be updated with the same interval. This constitutes D1.1 Living work plan and risk register established.
D.1.2 – Data Management Plan
The document describes the data management plan for the project. Upload instructions for project internal sharepoint site as well as public upload (e.g. Zenodo) are provided. Fair data for CAMELOT is described, including file naming conventions and metadata description. Table 2-1 lists data planned to be generated in the project.
D.1.3 – Annual Data Reporting
This deliverable summarises the project activities for the first 12 months of the project.
D.3.1 – Initial Thin Layer CCM Assessment
An initial assessment of MEA components has taken place for cathode catalyst layers of 0.1 mgPt/cm2 and membranes of ≤10 μm. Performance losses were identified for low loaded layers and a range of designs tested; the best case being a 30% Pt/C variant. A study has taken place of the ionomer loading in thin catalyst layers. Performance benefits and characteristics of thin membranes have been investigated and MEAs have been evaluated with combined thin catalyst and membrane layers.
D.4.1 – Document detailing testing used to parameterise FFC - PDF
This document outlines the experimental protocols to be used throughout the CAMELOT project. Detailed descriptions of various ex-situ techniques used to characterise the electrochemical properties of the catalyst and physical properties of the electrode layers, in-situ techniques for the electrochemical characterisation of the membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs), as well as experimental conditions and procedures are provided. The protocols outlined in this report will serve to parameterise state-of-the-art PEMFCs, thus providing valuable input for improving future iterations of the open-sourced Fast-FC™ model and ultimately leading to a better understanding of the fundamental transport phenomena within low temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cells.
D.5.1 – SRU Cell Standard Operating Conditions
The testing of SoA and beyond-SoA MEAs will be undertaken as part of the CAMELOT project at the single repeating unit (SRU) level. Two different SRU geometries will be utilized in this testing in order to capture the behaviour of the MEAs in different hardware. Due to the unique design and nature of the different SRU geometries, each SRU is ascribed two sets of operating conditions which are relevant for commercial application which are the focal point for the respective SRU developer. This report summarizes the operating conditions, a recommended guideline for cell conditioning, and a polarization collection protocol for the SRU testing to be carried out within the CAMELOT project.
D.6.1 – Project Website - PDF
The CAMELOT project website is designed to fulfil project communication and dissemination needs for the benefit of the whole scientific community and the public through relevant information including:
All the partners will collectively participate in the dissemination objective of the website by providing up-to-date information.
D.6.2 – Dissemination and knowledge management protocol
This report presents the dissemination protocol for the CAMELOT project, the procedure for “Open Access” to peer reviewed research articles, internal rules, information on support from the EU members and the strategy for Knowledge Management within the project.
