Title

Effect of Cathode Oxygen Concentration in High Temperature Single Flow Channel PEM Fuel Cell


Abstract

The design and various operating parameters are the two key factors which mostly affect the performance of any Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFC). Accumulation of water droplets on the cathode side is minimizing the penetration of hydrogen and oxygen gas in between the gas diffusion layer. So that the complete elimination of water droplet on the cathode side is the significant one to improve the performance of PEMFC. In this research single flow channel, high-temperature Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell is selected to investigate the effect of the cathode oxygen concentration for the five various operating temperatures by using commercial analysis software. The result shows that the Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell with an operating temperature of 463K gives the better cathode oxygen concentration among the other three operating temperatures.
