Özet

 Fuel cells are electrochemical devices that can convert chemical energy into direct electrical energy. Proton exchange membrane fuel cell is one of the several kinds of fuel cells. For understanding the electrical performance of the proton exchange membrane fuel cell, a voltage-current curve is used to explain the physical and chemical relationships and the fundamental operating principles. In this paper, a mathematical model of a proton exchange membrane fuel cell is developed and presented. The effect of various operating parameters (maximum current density, operative current density, cell temperature and the pressure of the reactant gases) on the performance of the proton exchange membrane fuel cell is investigated. The results are validated a previously done work. The results indicate that the model is quite good agreement with the experimental data. The mathematical model is very useful to reduce the investigating cost and avoid time waste for proton exchange membrane fuel cell controlling.
