5.6 WATER MANAGEMENT BETWEEN A PEM FUEL CELL AND FUEL PROCESSOR

Water product by a PEM fuel cell can be utilized in its fuel process when using hydrocarbon-­based fuels. This section is based on Ref. [17] and provides a brief introduction to water management between PEM fuel cells and their fuel processor. Figure 5-32 shows a simplified schematic of a generic fuel cell-fuel processor system. Streams flowing into the system boundary include a generic carbonaceous fuel (CnHmOp) feed to the fuel processor (FP), and air feeds to the (FP) and the fuel cell cathode.
