Working in my Ph'd entitled 'Control, analysis and dynamic modeling of a three-stage low-temperature ethanol reformer for fuel cell application'. Construction of a prototype to be integrated in the system (reformer-PEMFC) using the LabVIEW software. The prototype was built in order to test your start up in the fuel cell system. The work made with this proyect was the following: six publications in International Journals and carrying out two master thesis using my dynamic model.

Analysis of the control structures for an integrated ethanol processor for proton exchange membrane fuel cell systems.
Elsevier. Journal of power sources
The aim of this work is to investigate which would be a good preliminary plantwide control structure for the process of Hydrogen production from bioethanol to be used in a proton exchange membrane (PEM) accounting only steady-state information. The objective is to keep the process under optimal operation point, that is doing energy integration to achieve the maximum efficiency. Ethanol, produced from renewable feedstocks, feeds a fuel processor investigated for steam reforming, followed by high- and low-tem
Dynamic modeling of a three-stage low-temperature ethanol reformer for fuel cell application
Elsevier. Journal of Power Sources
A low-temperature ethanol reformer based on a cobalt catalyst for the production of hydrogen has been designed aiming the feed of a fuel cell for an autonomous low-scale power production unit. The reformer comprises three stages: ethanol dehydrogenation to acetaldehyde and hydrogen over SnO2 followed by acetaldehyde steam reforming over Co(Fe)/ZnO catalyst and water gas shift reaction. Kinetic data have been obtained under different experimental conditions and a dynamic model has been developed for a tubula
Dynamic modeling and controllability analysis of an ethanol reformer for fuel cell application
This work presents a controllability analysis of a low temperature ethanol reformer based on a cobalt catalyst for fuel cell application. The study is based on a non-linear dynamic model of a reformer which operates in three separate stages: ethanol dehydrogenation to acetaldehyde and hydrogen, acetaldehyde steam reforming, and water-gas-shift reaction. The controllability analysis is focused on the rapid dynamics due to mass balances and is based on a linearization of the complex non-linear model of the re
