In the presentation I have noticed an error regarding the positions of the insulator strings.
Actually the strain insulators are in almost horizontal position while the suspension are in perfect vertical position.

Page 12 - ... Hydrogen fuel is fed into the "anode" of the fuel cell. Oxygen (or air) enters the fuel cell through the cathode. Encouraged by a catalyst, the hydrogen atom splits into a proton and an electron, which take different paths to the cathode. The proton passes through the electrolyte. The electrons create a separate current that can be utilized before they return to the cathode, to be reunited with the hydrogen and oxygen in a molecule of water (see Figure 82).
Page 12 - A fuel cell system which includes a "fuel reformer" can utilize the hydrogen from any hydrocarbon fuel - from natural gas to methanol, and even gasoline. Since the fuel cell relies on chemistry and not combustion, emissions from this type of a system would still be much smaller than emissions from the cleanest fuel combustion processes.
Page 12 - In principle, a fuel cell operates like a battery. Unlike a battery, a fuel cell does not run down or require recharging. It will produce energy in the form of electricity and heat as long as fuel is supplied.
Page 12 - A fuel cell is an electrochemical device that converts the chemical energy of a fuel directly to electricity (and heat) without combustion as an intermediate step.
