    Single Cell Test method for Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells

Organization International Electrotechnical Commission

Identification Working Group #11
Technical Specification TS 62282-7-1
Single Cell Test Method for Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells (PEFC)


Scope This Technical Specification (TS) identifies cell assemblies, test apparatus, measuring instrumentation and methods, test methods and test reports for PEFC single cells. It is intended to be used for evaluating:
  • performance of membrane electrode assemblies (MEA) for PEFC’s
  • material or structures of other components of PEFC’s

  • the influence of impurities in fuel and air on the fuel cell performance.
