A Comparison of the Local Current Density in a PEM Fuel Cell

Image courtesy Benziger Research GroupA comparison of the local current density for co-current and counter-current flow of hydrogen and oxygen in a segmented anode PEM fuel cell. Current ignition is indicated by a jump in the current from near zero to ~ 100mA.The top two are the experimental currents for co-current flows (left) and counter-current flows (right). The bottom two are reaction-diffusion model simulations.
