Using commercial catalyst coated membranes, single fuel cell stack is assembled to investigate the effects of entrance and outlet flow channel design, reactant flow rate, operation temperature, and humidification temperature on cell performance. Metals have good electrical conductance and mechanical strength, which are suitable for bipolar plates in fuel cell stacks. Previous studies have shown that fuel cells using metal foam to replace traditional flow channels can have very good performance. The purpose of this study is to investigate the operation performance and characteristic of different entrance and outlet fuel channel designs. In addition, the effects of inlet and outlet gas distribution uniformity on the cell performance are also investigated in this study. The results show that the performance of the fuel cell stack is improved by using new entrance and outlet design that helps the reactants to distribute more evenly. The effect of inlet and outlet design is significant than operation temperature, and humidification temperature. In order to get better cell performance, suitable humidification in the cathode is required. For long-term operation, periodic purging in the cathode can reduce the polarization loss due to mass transfer.
