Fuel Cell Library – Release 1.6

Release Notes for Fuel Cell Library 1.6

Fuel Cell Library 1.6 is part of Modelon’s 2017.2 release.

New versions of Modelon libraries are sold and distributed directly from Modelon, as well as approved resellers.

Version 1.6 of the FuelCell library contains a new PEM fuel cell membrane model, including multiple loss models and the Nernst equation. This component is significantly more detailed than the simplified model in the library and represents the performance of the membrane for varying boundary conditions with much greater accuracy. Several example models have also been improved in terms of user friendliness, by adding visualizers to simplify the understanding of the experimental scenarios.

New features

  • New PEMFC membrane model and example with stack using this membrane.


  • Stack example models that visualize important system indicators, to quickly get an overview of the system characteristics
  • Improved initialization parameter structure in heat exchangers

Conversion of user libraries

Automatic conversion of user libraries from version 1.5 is supported using the included conversion script convertFCL_1.5_to_1.6.mos located under FuelCell/Resources/Scripts.


Fuel Cell Library 1.6 is based on Modelon Base Library 3.0 and Modelica Standard Library 3.2.2.
