Abstract
Proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) are

expected to play a significant role in the next generation of

energy systems and road vehicles for transportation. To

achieve high performance, low cost and high reliability,

significant attention is needed on detailed modeling and

simulation of various physical processes in PEMFC unit-cells.

Substantial effort is also required to reach proper water and

thermal balances for PEMFC stacks and integrated energy

systems. For modeling and analysis at the unit-cell and

component level, typically CFD-based approaches might be

appropriate. On the stack and system levels, methods like

lumped parameter... (More)
Proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) are

expected to play a significant role in the next generation of

energy systems and road vehicles for transportation. To

achieve high performance, low cost and high reliability,

significant attention is needed on detailed modeling and

simulation of various physical processes in PEMFC unit-cells.

Substantial effort is also required to reach proper water and

thermal balances for PEMFC stacks and integrated energy

systems. For modeling and analysis at the unit-cell and

component level, typically CFD-based approaches might be

appropriate. On the stack and system levels, methods like

lumped parameter analysis and overall energy/mass balances

are more suitable. This paper discusses various kinds of

methods for modeling and analysis, and how these can be used

as well as their applicability and limitations. The focus is

placed on water management/two-phase flow regimes and

characteristics of relevant models. (Less)
