Ignition Front Dynamics of a Parallel Flow Channel PEM Fuel Cell

Image courtesy Benziger Research Group

A comparison of the ignition front dynamics for co-current and counter-current flow of hydrogen and oxygen in a Parallel Flow Channel PEM fuel cell. The color scale is for the local current density as a function of the axial position from the hydrogen inlet. The time corresponds to the time after the load resistance was reduced from 20 Ω to 2 Ω.
