Matlab Source Code for species transport Through Nafion Membranes in Direct Ethanol, Direct Methanol, and Direct Glucose Fuel Cells

Main Article Content

John H. Summerfield

Abstract

A simple simulation of chemical species movement is presented. The species traverse a Nafion membrane in a fuel cell. Three cells are examined: direct methanol, direct ethanol, and direct glucose. The species are tracked using excess proton concentration, electric field strength, and voltage. The Matlab computer code is provided.
