Abstract
The propagation of single cell performance losses to adjacent cells in a polymer electrolyte fuel cell stack is studied by means of local current density measurements in a two cell stack. In this stack, the working conditions of adjacent cells can be controlled independently in order to deliberately change the performance of one cell (inducing cell) and study the coupling effects to the adjacent cell (response cell), while keeping the working conditions of the later one unchanged. The experiments have shown that changes in the current density distribution caused by lowering of the air stoichiometry in the inducing cell cause changes in the current density distribution of the response cell in the order of 60% of the change of the inducing cell, even when the air stoichiometry of the response cell is kept constant. The losses in cell voltage of the inducing cell cause losses in cell voltage of the response cell in a magnitude between 30 and 50%.
