Fuel cell science and technology cut across multiple disciplines, including materials science, interfacial science, transport phenomena, electrochemistry, and catalysis. It is always a major challenge to fully understand the thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, fuel cell dynamics, and electrochemical processes within a fuel cell. In addition to modeling, which is described in Chapter 7, diagnostics is another tool that can help elucidate the complex processes taking place in an operational fuel cell. On one hand, diagnostics can help distinguish the structure-property-performance relationships between ...
