|Abstract: ||Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells (PEFCs) offer a number of advantages over traditional power
generation systems, including high efficiency, high power density, and no local carbon-emissions. However,
even the best demonstrator projects suffer in lifetime durability; only surviving up to half the current US Department
of Energy (2006) targets.
Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) has been identified as a methodology that could be applied to
PEFCs to enhance and extend functional lifetime. PHM techniques would be applied through the control systems
for the fuel cell; monitoring and managing the operational parameters, and measuring state of health.
The approach selected in this investigation is to call upon expert knowledge and understanding of the
PEFC functionality; this produces a rule-based fuzzy-logic model. This paper introduces a diagnosticorientated
fuzzy-inference model of a PEFC. This combines with existing fuel cell control and monitoring
processes, to diagnose a range of commonly documented failure modes.|
