Proton exchange membrane fuel cell, porosity, water transport, model, simulation
The proton exchange membrane fuel cell is an example of clean energy. Recently, a three-dimensional, steady-state non-isotherm mathematical model for proton exchange membrane fuel cell was developed for further exploration. This 3D model simultaneously takes into account the mass, momentum, energy, species, charge conservation equation as well as combines electrochemistry reaction inside the fuel cell. The simulation results reveals that it is easy to improve the fuel cell performance for higher porosity in the diffusion layer by speeding up the gas diffusion, reducing the concentration grads of gas, depressing the ridge board domino effect and falling current density grads.
