Title: Optimization of Direct Methanol Fuel Cell Power System

Abstract: This paper presents a non-linear dynamic modeling of direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) based on a simplified mechanism for methanol electro-oxidation reaction and the evolution intermediate species coverage with time. The model is developed to describe the I-V relationships based on designed experiments; it is then integrated into multiple optimizations to achieve the adaptation. Finally, numerical simulations are performed with Matlab software to optimize the underlying mechanisms of the proposed operation process in order to improve the energy efficiency of the cell.

Key words: DMFC, Electrical Characterization ,Power Energy, Optimization.
