Development of optimisation model for direct methanol fuel cells via cell integrated network

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A cell network consists of a combination of fuel cells to achieve the targeted power consumption for a specific application. The main objective of this study is to design and optimise direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) via cell integrated network model targeted for small portable application, such as cell phones and tablets. The target current and voltage was 1400 mA and 3.7 V, respectively, for a 5.18 W of cell network power. The optimisation was performed using 16 cells that were arranged in series with a voltage output of 3.781 V and a current of 1400 mA. The overall active area for the cell network was 128 cm2, and the cost of 1 set of cell networks is USD 1400.
