Abstract

ABSTRACT Investigation of the single cell Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (SCPEMFC) using a series of Nafion-SiO2-PWA composite membranes as electrolyte have been carried out using the Arbin Fuel Cell Test System (FCTS). PEMFC performance and proton conductivity of the composite membrane have been determined over a temperature range of 30-90oC at pressure 1-1.7 atm at 40% RH. Analysis with FCTS showed that higher current density was yielded by composite membrane (82 mAcm-2 at 0.6 V for NS15W) than with the Nafion membrane (30 mAcm-2 at 0.2 V) at 90 oC. Hence the composite is potentially a good candidate to substitute Nafion membrane especially for the electrolyte of PEMFC operating at higher temperature range and lower RH.
