• History: This PAS covers the
integration of IEC 62282-6-100 main body section with Annex F
from the same document, but with an expansion of fuels
compared to those originally covered by Annex F.
• Purpose of Document: This document is intended to serve as an early published
document that may be referred to by international transportation
• Urgency of Project: Representatives of
micro fuel cell developers are working with international transportation
regulators to permit the use of micro fuel cell power systems by commercial
aircraft cabin passengers and by commercial shipping means. IEC
62282-6-100 does not include the use of these new fuels. Proponents
want to satisfy transportation regulators that a published safety document
exists in order to move forward with the new technology. The delay required
to wait for the second edition of the standard will cause hardship for the
proponents of the new fuels.
• Consensus: WG 8 already
discussed earlier versions of the present draft at its meetings in Geneva and in
Seattle (June and October 2010); the draft attached has therefore reached acertain level of consensus
• Publication: The draft is
intended to be published as a stand-alone IEC/PAS (possible reference would be IEC/PAS
62282-6-150). The relationship between the proposed PAS and IEC 62282-6-100
is described in the scope (clause 1, last paragraph). In the frame of
the planned splitting of IEC 62282-6-100 edition 1 the PAS will be
transformed at a later date into an IS and
integrated into the IEC 62282-6-1xx series.
IEC/PAS 62282-6-150:2011(E) covers micro fuel cell power
systems using hydrogen produced from the reaction of an aqueous solution with
solid UN Division 4.3 (water-reactive) compounds in indirect PEM fuel cell
systems that are wearable or easily carried by hand, providing d.c. outputs that do not exceed 60 V d.c.
and power outputs that do not exceed 240 VA.
