ABSTRAKT

Water management plays a crucial role in a proton exchange membrane fuel cell. Experimental investigation of water transport in a gas diffusion layer (GDL) promotes the understanding to transport mechanism in it. Also it is helpful to model constructing. In this study, an ex situ setup is built to investigate water vapor transport process with heat transfer. Gas permeability and vapor condensation amount are measured. It is observed that water vapor condenses and breakthrough the sample when water vapor flows through GDL with temperature gradients between the two sides. The breakthrough phenomenon is different from that of liquid water. According to water vapor condensing mass measurement, the roles of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) loading of GDL and micro-porous layer (MPL) are analyzed based on the experiments on various samples. The results show that the presence of PTFE causes the condensing amount of vapor decreasing. In addition, adding MPL to one side of gas diffusion substrate (GDS) facilitates water transport in the vapor phase. MPL is beneficial to water removal from GDL.
