With the introduction of progressively more stringent emissions regulation, decarbonization targets, and energy resource constraints, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles have attracted interest from vehicle manufacturers, governments, and consumers. This paper describes computational modelling of a proton exchange membrane fuel cell for use in a fuel cell electric vehicle. Predicting fuel cell performance allows for selection of fuel cell system components to maximize efficiency in automotive applications. This paper reviews EU and Global Technical Regulation for hydrogen powered vehicles, and includes a description of commercially available fuel cell stacks and systems. Recent Publications 1.
