Sensors for Safety and Process Control in Hydrogen Technologies (Paperback)

Despatched in 2 business days.


Understand, Select, and Design Sensors for Hydrogen-Based Applications

The use of hydrogen generated from renewable energy sources is expected to become an essential component of a low-carbon, environmentally friendly energy supply, spurring the worldwide development of hydrogen technologies. Sensors for Safety and Process Control in Hydrogen Technologies provides practical, expert-driven information on modern sensors for hydrogen and other gases as well as physical parameters essential for safety and process control in hydrogen technologies. It illustrates how sensing technologies can ensure the safe and efficient implementation of the emerging global hydrogen market.

The book explains the various facets of sensor technologies, including practical aspects relevant in hydrogen technologies. It presents a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the theory (physical and chemical principles), design, and implementations of sensors in hydrogen technologies. The authors also offer guidance on the development of new sensors based on the analysis of the capabilities and limitations of existing sensors with respect to current performance requirements.

Suitable for both technical and non-technical personnel, the book provides a balance between detailed descriptions and simple explanations. It gives invaluable insight into the role sensors play as key enabling devices for both control and safety in established and emerging hydrogen technologies.

Thomas Hubert is head of the laboratory and working group on chemical sensor technology and sol-gel chemistry at the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) in Berlin, Germany. Dr. Hubert participates in national and international standardization activities, including the ISO working group for hydrogen detection, and is the author/coauthor of more than 130 scientific publications. His research interests include the development, testing, calibration, and certification of gas and humidity sensors especially for automotive applications. Lois Boon-Brett led the hydrogen safety sensor performance testing task at the European Commission's Joint Research Centre-Institute for Energy and Transport (JRC-IET) in Petten, The Netherlands. In this context, Dr. Boon-Brett was a member of the ISO and IEC sensor working groups. Her research interests include hydrogen safety sensor performance testing and technology validation. She currently leads the electric vehicle battery-testing group at the JRC-IET. William Buttner is a senior scientist in the Transportation and Hydrogen Systems Center at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado, where he manages the Hydrogen Sensor Laboratory. He is active on a variety of standards development organizations that pertain to the safe use of hydrogen, including ISO, ASTM, SAE, and UL. Dr. Buttner has written more than 100 publications on chemical sensors and sensor-based methods for on-site chemical analyses. His research interests include chemical and physical sensor technology, field analytical chemistry, and electrochemical processes.
