Abstract

This paper deals with modelling proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) open circuit voltage model. Unlike conventional models it reduces the cost of special sensors required in PEMFC which calculate the hydrogen and oxygen pressure inside the fuel cell system. The model uses semi-empirical equation to consider the water vapour pressure in PEMFC system both at anode and cathode side. This model is more effective than the recent models of PEMFC, since the model requires only the operating temperature of PEMFC and the applied hydrogen pressure as fuel. The proposed model fits the experimental results performed on NEXA 1.2 kW PEMFC stack system. The error between modelled and experiment output voltage is measured with the help of root mean square error and it is found to be 0.1213.
