Fuel Cell Modeling

Modeling plays a significant and important role in the fuel cell design and development process. Because of its importance, modeling is initiated early in a fuel cell development cycle, as shown in Figure 7-1 [1]. The flowchart illustrates a typical procedure in fuel cell development, where the process begins with a set of requirements. Requirements include power and energy requirements, environmental operating conditions, size and volume limitations, safety specifications, and others. Along with the requirements, knowledge of materials, processes, and material interactions is necessary to properly construct a fuel cell stack. Once several designs are down-selected, modeling of the designs is performed to determine ...
