Paper Title:
Effects of Temperature on the Impedance of PEM Fuel Cell
  Abstract

Electrochemical impedance (EI) plays a very important role on the characteristics of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell. In this paper, the effects of the cell temperature and the humidification temperature on the electrochemical impedance are analyzed by the equivalent circuit. The results show: when the cell temperature is higher than the gas humidification temperature, ohms impedance and Faraday impedance increase markedly, and electric double layer in the PEM fuel cell inclines to the specialty of capacitive reactance; the more than the cell temperature the gas humidification temperatures is, the more the extent of specialty of capacitive reactance the electric double layer shows. These results are very helpful to understand the operating principle of PEM fuel cell and improve its performance.
