Development of the Electrical Conductivity of PEM Fuel Cell

Abstract

This research is aimed to develop the electrical conductivity of PEM fuel cellthrough the using of a series of graphite plates. The effect of width, thickness of platesin addition to the current and gas flow rate (hydrogen and oxygen) were studied.Results showed that electrical conductivity can be reached to the optimum value(850Scm), when cell thickness, current and gas flow rate are 0.3cm, 8.13A and 0.6Lmin respectively.
