Abstract:

The overall objective of the Phase I program is the design of a proton-exchange membrane fuel cell flow field amenable to water ejection from the active area of a fuel cell operating at elevated pressures. Elevated-pressure operation of hydrogen / oxygen fuel cells has many potential benefits for round-trip efficiency and energy utilization in applications such as high-altitude airships. Flow fields for hydrogen / oxygen fuel cells have not been designed for water management in an elevated-pressure operation regime, and design of this type of flow field has the possibility of generating more efficient and lighter weight regenerative fuel cell systems. In Phase I, the effectiveness of a flow field designed specifically for a hydrogen / oxygen proton-exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) for high-pressure (400 psi) operation will be demonstrated.
