Abstract

The depletion of fossil fuel, rise in oil prices, increase in power demand and environmental concerns has led renewable energy to be an alternative energy option. Among the various types of renewable energy, fuel cell technology shows a great potential in electrical energy sector due to several reasons such as high efficiency, clean operation, and immune to weather conditions. Fuel cell is an electrochemical device that converts chemical energy of a reaction directly into electrical energy and can be categorized as a high grade electricity source because of its ability to produce constant power at full load. This paper presents mathematical modeling and simulation study of proton exchange membrane and planar solid oxide fuel cells by using Matlab/Simulink software. The main objective of this paper is to compare the simulation results of the two fuel cell types which stated earlier. Simulation results show that proton exchange membrane fuel cell has higher voltage capacity and power density while planar solid oxide fuel cell gives better performance for the step load current changes.
