Abstract

The interest in direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) is based on their potential for energy saving and cleaner energy production. However, there are some limitations that DMFC has to overcome before it can become one of the main alternative power sources in the market. This project will focused on the methanol crossover effect as one of the limitation that DMFC have. CFD model was developed using Ansys Fluent PEM Fuel Cell Module to study and understand the behaviour of the effect. Temperature will be the main varying parameters that will be studied for this project. Simulation results show that methanol crossover significantly increases the cathode overpotential at low current density but it is reduced when the current density is increased to a certain amount of value.
