PEM Fuel Cell Performance and Lifetime Optimization Using Multi-Physics Simulation

Fuel Cell_Landing Page

Optimize performance and lifetime of PEM fuel cells while minimizing costs.


Vehicles powered by PEM fuel cells provide a long driving range and short refueling time. Development engineers face the challenges to optimize the fuel conversion efficiency and lifetime while reducing material and manufacturing costs. To successfully meet these challenges, AVL FIRE™ offers a comprehensive multi-physics simulation approach.
