Economic and environmental issues are forcing industry to explore alternative energy sources for vehicles and electronic devices. Much effort is being put into fuel cell research because they hold the promise of high energy density, low environmental impact, and broad applicability. Hydrogen is the main source of fuel for high-performance applications with water being the only product. These attributes make the hydrogen fuel cell a practical replacement for many power sources that are inefficient and environmentally unfriendly. The basic functional unit of the fuel cell is the membrane electrode assembly (MEA). The MEA is the loci where the electrochemistry occurs to produce electricity from hydrogen and oxygen. The MEA consists of the polymer membrane with an electrode adhered to either side. The electrode contains the platinum Eelectro-catalyst dispersed on carbon black with a polymer binder. The effect of gas diffusion electrode to the performance of fuel cells was studied in a single cell. Performance dependence on the intrinsic material properties was studied by Fuel cell test system. The interdependence between gas diffusion electrode and fuel cell performance was covered. Long-term stability of the PEMFC stack built in the Laboratory of Advanced Energy Systems was demonstrated by operating it continuously.
