Abstract
The well-known challenges to overcome in PEM fuel cell research are their relatively low durability and the high costs for the platinum catalysts. This work focuses on degradation mechanisms that are present in open-cathode PEM fuel cell systems and their links to the decaying fuel cell performance. Therefore a degraded, open-cathode, 20 cell, PEM fuel cell stack was analyzed by means of in-situ and ex-situ techniques. Voltage transients during external perturbations, such as changing temperatur...
