Abstract: 
The development of a generalized
steadystate electrochemical model of a polymer electrolyte fuel cell or
proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) system is presented by R.F Mann et
al. to predict the output voltage of a single Ballard Mark V cell as a
function of the major variables like current density, pressure of the
reactant gases and working temperature more efficiently (Mann et al. 2000).
But this model cannot explain the behavior of the voltage at high current
densities as well as the other ranges. In this research a new term that
account for mass transfer losses is added to compensate the precision of the
model particularity at high current densities. Using this model, the power
density of a Ballard Mark V fuel cell system that consists of 35 cells is
optimized by a hybrid optimization algorithm base on genetic algorithm and a
gradient base algorithm that shows very good performance to reach the exact
optimum point.
