Abstract

In this paper, numerical modeling methods for a fuel cell are explained. The aim of this study is to make an analysis system to perform investigation on the whole behavior of a fuel cell with higher precision. Through numerical analysis, the effects of changing the structure and the control will be able to be made clear. Liquid water distribution and temperature distribution inside the fuel cell are analyzed and evaluated in general under various situations. This paper describes through a two-phase two-dimensional analysis effects of pressure and temperature for liquid water distribution in fuel cells.
