Abstract

Light-weight, porous bipolar plates were developed that are ideally suited for use with phosphoric acid-doped polybenzimidazole membrane fuel cells. The porous nature of the bipolar plates allows for a reservoir of acid to remain in intimate contact with the MEA to replenish lost acid. Single-cell and 4-cell stack data show good repeatability, both in flow distribution and performance scans. Over 1000 hour endurance data show performance losses are due to MEA decay, and not bipolar plate corrosion.
