Uniform compressive stress distribution is applied over the active area of a PEMFC stack to increase the contact area between the electrically conductive components of the stack. This increases fuel cell stack efficiency. Fuel cell stack is constructed as a modular component readily connected with like modules for providing fuel cell stack configurations capable of meeting a wide range of power generation for application to vehicles, including submersible vehicles up to utility power requirements.
A proton exchange membrane fuel cell stack, comprising: said stack having a housing and end plates disposed on opposite sides of the stack including means for providing fixed support of said end plates to said housing; multiple fuel cells arranged in the stack, each of said fuel cells having an inactive area and an active area within which electrically conductive elements are disposed, including an electrically conductive first bipolar plate portion as an anode, an electrically conductive second bipolar plate portion as a cathode, a proton exchange membr...
