Fuel Cells are voltanic cells in which the reactants are continuously supplied to the electrodes. In other words, Fuel Cells are electrochemical devices in which the chemical energy of the fuel in directly converted into electrical energy. Depending on the type of fuel used, Fuel cells can be of the following types:
i. Hydrogen -- Oxygen Fuel Cell
ii. Hydrocarbon -- Oxygen Fuel Cell
iii. Methyl Alcohol -- Oxygen Fuel Cell
iv. Carbon Monoxide -- Oxygen Fuel Cell
