Design and evaluation of experiments

Participants: SINTEF, ECN, IRD, JRC


  • identify critical operating conditions for PEM fuel cell stacks, based on screening of single cells, actual testing of stacks, field tests, modelling and experimental assessment of local conditions in a stack
  • based on statistical analysis of data, in combination with fundamental knowledge of degradation mechanisms, propose new accelerated stress tests (AST) for PEM fuel cells
  • develop lifetime prediction models based on theoretical and phenomenological models, as well as the results of the statistical analysis
