Abstract: Efficiency and durability of proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) are compromised by drying of the membrane and by water flooding. This paper introduces a novel water management strategy by exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). The PEM fuel cell system with cathode EGR has a simpler structure and operates at lower cost than the conventional one with an external humidifier. Based on a modified PEMFC system model with ERG description added, the water content characteristics are captured in the presence and abs…
