Translated title of the contribution: Exegoeconomic analysis on a proton electrolyte membrane fuel cell

Abstract

The objective of this study is to perform an exergy and economic analysis onproton electrolyte membrane fuel cellpower system (PEMFC) known as exegoeconomic. A 5 kW PEMFC was taken as case study. The fuel cell includes the hydrogen processing system and a fuel cell stack. The hydrogen processing system consisted of an auto-thermal reactor (ATR), a water gas shift reactor (WGS), tubular ceramic membrane module (TCR) and a pressure swing adsorber (PSA). The fuel cell stack was the main power generator. It was obseved that TCM and PSA have low exergy efficiency of 0.29% and 0.09%, repectively. Exergy efficiency for the auto-thermal reactor and fuel cell stack were higher at 22.44% and 31.97%, respectively and both values are comparable with other studies. The exergoeconomicsfor the 5kWfuel cell system was determined as RM4756.62 per GJ. From the analysis, it is also found that the fuel cell cost can more competa tive, if the cost of operation, mantainance and fuel can be reduced.
