Abstract

The stirred tank reactor polymer electrolyte membrane (STR-PEM) fuel cell exhibits remarkable steady state multiplicity analogous to the autocatalytic exothermic stirred tank reactor. The STR-PEM fuel cell is used as a building block to approximate more conventional integral (plug flow) type cell reactors. Experimental data and model predictions of the ignition and extinction front movements in PEM fuel cells are presented. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting and Fall Showcase (Cincinnati, OH 10/30/2005-11/4/2005).
