Abstract
In this paper a methodology for the estimation of the Electrochemically active Surface Area (ECSA) of a Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) is developed. Specifically, the ECSA in the Cathode Catalyst Layer (CCL) is estimated, which makes it possible to quantify the amount of active platinum (Pt) in the CCL. In order to estimate the ECSA, the internal conditions of the PEMFC have to be known. A model-based observer for the distributed parameter dynamics is designed. From the observation o...
