A stacked fuel cell has a plurality of cell plaques, each plaque having a plurality of horizontally disposed fuel cells placed in an insulating frame. By utilizing a plurality of cell plaques, overall fuel cell stack voltage can be substantially increased by interconnecting adjacent plaque cells to form substacks which are in turn connected in series. Thus stack voltage is increased without requiring additional fuel cell height.
A fuel cell stack comprising a plurality of cell plaques, each plaque having a plurality of individual fuel cells electrically isolated from each other, the cells interconnected fluidly to provide a fuel and an oxidizer to each cell, adjacent cells disposed in a plaque-to-plaque relationship forming a substack, each substack serially connected electrically to another substack to increase the stack voltage.
