Abstract
The well-known challenges to be overcome in PEM fuel cell research are their relatively low durability and high costs for the platinum catalysts. Thus, this work focuses on factors that impact durability and the links to the fuel cell performance. Therefore a degraded, open-cathode, 20-cell, PEM fuel cell stack, which was used in a laboratory test station for characterization experiments, was analyzed experimentally. Voltage transients during external perturbations, such as changing temperature,...
