Fuel cells produce electricity by combining hydrogen and oxygen to form water. Fuel cells have unique electrical characteristics and performances that warrant examination and discussion. From the hydrogen source to the electrical load, a polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell system is explained and modeled with empirical equations. An ensuing simulation in Simulink exposes a fuel cell’s limitations and provides avenues for successful integration into residential applications.
