Abstract—In this paper, fuel cell control is investigated in addition to the use of fuzzy logic to control fuel cells. For fuzzy rules, the maximum power point tracking algorithm is used. Additionally, PID control is used and tested in this paper. As simulation results show, the performance of fuzzy logic is better than PID control. In general, for fuel cell systems, humidification is required for the air or the hydrogen, or both the air and hydrogen at the fuel cell inlets. Moreover, water content is very important for the protonic conductivity in the proton exchange membranes. If membrane dehydration or drying occurs, electrical performance decreases due to significant ohmic losses.
