To develop proper hydrogen purge strategies in combination with temperature a water management, CFD modeling is an important tool. Dynamic simulation of water and temperature distribution during and between purges, which is linked to the cell performance, facilitates the development and test of different control strategies. The goal of an effective purge strategy would be to increase the interval between purges by changing operation conditions such as fuel cell temperature or flow rates and thus...
