Paper Title:
Increase of Electrolysis Cell Performance by Addition of PVDF and Graphite Powder on MEA for Regenerative Fuel Cells
  Abstract

For the regenerative fuel cell (RFC), water electrolysis cell performance using membrane electrode assembly (MEA) in polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PEMFC) were investigated. A part of Nafion had been secondary sprayed on the surface of catalytic layer and variation of cell performance was diminished. The conformation of stability, improvement of mechanical and electrical properties was accomplished by addition of PVDF, graphite and RuO2. With the addition of graphite power and RuO2, the voltage was decreased from 3.6V to 2.5V and 2.2V. The improvement of the mechanical properties was obtained by addition of PVDF. The electrolysis cell manufactured with MEA electrode was showed less decomposition voltage of 1.3V than with Nafion electrode at 10A of applied current. The stability of MEA was confirmed from 30 days of cell operation
