Effect of Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and micro porous layer (MPL) on thermal conductivity of fuel cell gas diffusion layers: Modeling and experiments

Abstract

An analytic robust model is developed for estimating GDL thermal conductivity. The model considers PTFE addition to the GDL. Thermal conductivity of MPL is accurately measured in a compression range of 2e14 bar. Effect of thermal conductivity on PTFE, MPL, and compression is considered. Thermal contact resistances between GDL and MPL/iron surface are… (More)
