Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) CFD Simulation, ANSYS Fluent CFD Tutorial


This project, which has been done by CFD numerical simulation method with the help of ANSYS Fluent software, a proton exchange membrane fuel cell is simulated. Fuel cells generate electricity through a chemical reaction and are less polluting than other power generation methods. In this project, a fuel cell is simulated from the PEMFC model.

The two-dimensional geometry of this project has been produced with SpaceClaim software. The length of the calculation domain is 220 mm, its width is 100 mm, and its height is 40 mm. The meshing of this project has been done with ANSYS Meshing software, and the type of elements is structured. Also, the total number of elements is 876,000.

PEMFC Methodology

In this project, the flow equations and the energy equation are solved. Several modules are used, including Species Transport, Porous & Fuel cell, and electrolysis. The flow channels carry a mixture of gaseous species, including oxygen, hydrogen, and water. The catalytic part consists of a porous medium with a porosity coefficient of 0.5 and contains mass sources, thermal energy, electrical potential, proton potential, saturated water, hydrogen, oxygen, and water.

The gaseous diffusion zone comprises a porous medium with a porosity coefficient of 0.5 and contains mass sources, thermal energy, electrical potential, saturated water, and hydrogen, oxygen, and gaseous water species.

PEMFC Conclusion

The present study aims to investigate the fluid behavior and thermal conductivity of a polymer fuel cell and its effect on the mass fraction of gaseous species and the amount of electricity produced in the cell.

After the simulation process, results are shown in the form of contours. The hydrogen and oxygen react, and this process leads to the electric current generation. The electrolyte membrane acts as a bridge between cathode and anode, and the catalytic layer boosts the transmission.

    The tutorial was superbly detailed, and I now have a deeper understanding of PEMFC. Is it possible to adjust the porosity coefficient in other simulations, and how would this affect the outcomes?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      Yes, it is certainly possible to adjust the porosity coefficient in other simulations. Changing the porosity impacts how easily fluids and gases can pass through the porous medium, thus altering mass transport, reaction rates, and ultimately electrical output. It’s important to match the porosity to the characteristics of the actual materials being used to obtain accurate results.

    I’m curious about the impact of the flow channel design on the fuel cell’s performance. Is there information on how the alteration of channel dimensions could affect the outputs like electricity generation and efficiency?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In the simulation setup, alterations to the flow channel design will impact fluid dynamics and reactant distribution, which are crucial factors influencing PEMFC performance. However, the relationship is complex and requires further simulation studies to fully quantify the effect of changing channel dimensions on electricity generation and overall efficiency. These are typically addressed in sensitivity analysis or a parametric study within such simulations.
