Abstract

Several papers published for the optimization of DMFC considering only the design parameters like feed flow, temperature and methanol crossover. However, this paper present a non liner programming (NLP) optimization with respect to the design and the geometrical parameters of anode and cathode such as methanol concentration, current density, power density, catalyst loading, catalyst layer, over potential, etc. The objective function is to maximize the power output of DMFC. Optimization tool in Matlab and Genetic algorithm (GA) are used to solve the algorithm. The obtained outputs were verified with the experimental results.
