Fuel cells can produce electricity from an external source of fuel and oxidizer. They are clean, quiet and highly efficient. Polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells (FCs) operate at lower temperatures than other types of fuel cells and are frequently employed in vehicles and personal mobility applications in the aerospace and defense industry. This webinar will focus on the application of the PEMFC module in ANSYS Fluent to both simple and complex fuel cell geometries to help understand the effects of geometric and operating parameters on device performance and thermal management.
