Fuel cell design: The impact of fuel cell dynamics on operation

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A discussion on basic and fundamental issues in the system design and control of fuel cells often overlooked covers the difficulties inherent in controlling fuel cells; why conventional operating specifications exacerbate problems in controlling PEMFC, and how cell failure in conventional PEMFC stacks can be caused by uncontrollable rises in cell temperature as a result of inherent system dynamics; issues in relation to how they relate to membrane design and benchmarking of new membrane technology; and tests conducted using a generic hydrogen/oxygen PEMFC and a single cell battery to make the analysis universal. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 230th ACS National Meeting (Washington, DC 8/28/2005-9/1/2005).
