We present a new flow field design, termed convection-enhanced serpentine flow field (CESFF), for polymer electrolyte-based fuel cells, which was obtained by re-patterning conventional single serpentine flow fields. We show theoretically that the CESFF induces larger pressure differences between adjacent flow channels over the entire electrode surface than does the conventional flow field, thereby enhancing in-plane forced flow through the electrode porous layer. This characteristic increases… CONTINUE READING
