Optimizing Performance: Water and Power Management Systems in Fuel Cell Technology

Vinay Nagarad Dasavandi Krishnamurthy [3]

Abstract: Fuel cell technology presents a promising avenue for clean and efficient energy conversion, particularly in light of concerns regarding fossil fuel depletion and environmental impact. This paper explores the critical role of water and power management systems in optimizing the performance of fuel cells. A comparison between batteries and fuel cells highlights the advantages of the latter, such as higher energy density and faster refueling times. The discussion delves into the basic working principles of Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFCs), emphasizing the importance of effective water management to prevent flooding and ensure operational efficiency. Issues related to water management, such as flooding and polarization loss, are identified, and strategies for addressing these challenges are discussed. Additionally, the goal and function of both Water Management Systems (WMS) and Power Management Systems (PMS) are elucidated, emphasizing the need for stability, efficiency, and precise power delivery in fuel cell systems. Through the implementation of robust water and power management systems, fuel cell technology can realize its potential as a reliable and clean energy source for various applications, contributing to a sustainable energy future.
