An arrangement and a method are proposed for the generation of water on board an aircraft with the use of one or more fuel cells, whereby low-temperature fuel cells are provided as fuel cells. It is proposed that several single-cell or few-cell fuel cells may form a fuel-cell panel or cell array and several cell panels or cell arrays may be arranged close to the inside of the aircraft fuselage and the cathode side of the at least one fuel cell has a chamber pointing to the exterior of the aircraft for the condensation of the water contained in the air an...
What is claimed is: 1. A method for generating water on board an aircraft comprising the steps of: providing at least one fuel cell having a cathode side with a first chamber arranged towards an outside of the aircraft; forming at least one of a fuel-cell panel and a cell array, which includes the at least one fuel cell, such that the at least one of the fuel-cell panel and a cell array is curved and arranged in close proximity to a fuselage skin of the aircraft; supplying cold air from an external-air side of the aircraft to the cathode side of the at ...
