Abstract
Effects of operating temperature on performance degradation of PEMFCs were investigated under the repetitive on/off cycling operation to optimize operating conditions for fuel cell vehicles. Performance was traded off with durability of PEMFCs; at higher operating temperature, initial performance of a single cell was better while performance degradation was faster in order of 80, 65 and 40 ℃. With repeating startup/shutdown cycles, polarization curves, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), cyclic voltam-metry (CV), linear sweep voltammetry (LSV) were measured to examine in-situ degradation of the MEAs. To investigate physic-chemical degradation of the MEAs, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), electron probe micro analyzer (EPMA) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) were employed before and after the durability tests.
