This research is aimed to develop the electrical conductivity of PEM fuel cell
through the using of a series of graphite plates. The effect of width, thickness of plates
in addition to the current and gas flow rate (hydrogen and oxygen) were studied.
Results showed that electrical conductivity can be reached to the optimum value
(850Scm), when cell thickness, current and gas flow rate are 0.3cm, 8.13A and 0.6
Lmin respectively.
