Bridge Power: Enabling Fuel Cells for Backup Systems

Bridge power describes the short-term power necessary to "bridge" from one long-term power source to another. Bridge power is needed because typical standby power generation equipment is not instantly available and takes time to be brought online. The combination of both bridge and long term power generation is necessary because the cost associated with extending bridge power beyond a few minutes is high, and maintenance and reliability issues where batteries are employed may make a single "long-term bridge" prohibitive.
