Abstract

Widespread commercialization of fuel cells will require significant improvements in power density, reliability, and cost, which can only be accomplished through improved understanding of the thermodynamic, fluid dynamic, and electrochemical processes within a fuel cell. To date, a wide range of experimental diagnostic tools have been developed to not only obtain a fundamental understanding of fuel cell dynamics and degradation but also to provide benchmark-quality data for modeling research. Herein, the latest advances are reviewed for three categories of diagnostics for polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells and stacks: species, temperature, and current distribution mapping. We identify species of interest within a fuel cell, while also reviewing the methodology, results, and design implications for each category of diagnostic tool. Capabilities and weaknesses of the techniques are discussed, while placing them within the broader context of fuel cell development.
