摘要

The study applies a three-dimensional model simulating the transport phenomenon and electrochemical reactions of full scale serpentine channels to determine the best arrangement of cuboid rows at the axis in the anode and cathode channels. With the best arrangement of the cuboid rows in the channels, the Taguchi methodology is used in the experiment to obtain the optimal operating parameters for three objectives with the minimum pressure drops in anode and cathode channels, and maximum electrical power. The results show that the interactions of flow fields between each cuboid and the current collector surface generate less overall deflection effect and force more reactant gases into the catalyst layer to have more uniform current density distributions. The electrical power is 30% greater for the three objectives optimization than for minimum pressure drops optimization and the pressure drops 275% less for the three objectives optimization than for maximum electrical power optimization.
