Common initial manifestations include paranoia; poor impulse control; DEPRESSION; HALLUCINATIONS; and DELUSIONS. Eventually intellectual impairment; loss of fine motor control; ATHETOSIS; and diffuse chorea involving axial and limb musculature develops, leading to a vegetative state within 10-15 years of disease onset.

  • A fuel cell uses a positive electrode (the cathode) and a negative electrode (the anode) with an electrolyte in between for conducting charged particles. (howstuffworks.com)
  • Instead of having just one wall that separates the two gases, PNNL's microchannel heat exchangers have multiple walls created by a series of tiny looping channels that are narrower than a paper clip. (eponline.com)
  • One of the most efficient types of fuel cells is the solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). (howstuffworks.com)
  • Individual homes and entire neighborhoods could be powered with a new, small-scale solid oxide fuel cell system that achieves up to 57 percent efficiency, significantly higher than the 30 to 50 percent efficiencies previously reported for other solid oxide fuel cell systems of its size, according to a study published in this month's issue of Journal of Power Sources.

  • PNNL's system includes fuel cell stacks developed earlier with the support of DOE's Solid State Energy Conversion Alliance. (eponline.com)
  • But, until now, most people have focused on larger systems that produce 1 megawatt of power or more and can replace traditional power plants," said Vincent Sprenkle, a co-author on the paper and chief engineer of PNNL's solid oxide fuel cell development program. (eponline.com)
  • Sprenkle and his co-authors had community-sized power generation in mind when they started working on their solid oxide fuel cell, also known as a SOFC. (eponline.com)
  • Steam reforming has been used with fuel cells before, but the approach requires heat that, when directly exposed to the fuel cell, causes uneven temperatures on the ceramic layers that can potentially weaken and break the fuel cell. (eponline.com)
  • So the PNNL team opted for external steam reforming, which completes the initial reactions between steam and the fuel outside of the fuel cell. (eponline.com)
  • On one side of the wall is the hot exhaust that is expelled as a byproduct of the reaction inside the fuel cell. (eponline.com)
  • On the other side is a cooler gas that is heading toward the fuel cell. (eponline.com)
  • Heat moves from the hot gas, through the wall and into the cool incoming gas, warming it to the temperatures needed for the reaction to take place inside the fuel cell. (eponline.com)
  • Reusing the steam, which is mixed with fuel, also means the system is able to use up some of the leftover fuel it wasn't able to consume when the fuel first moved through the fuel cell. (eponline.com)
  • However, this research shows that smaller solid oxide fuel cells that generate between 1 and 100 kilowatts of power are a viable option for highly efficient, localized power generation. (eponline.com)
  • However, the microstructure of the cathode is also important in determining cell performance by tailoring the cathode sintering temperature. (utexas.edu)
