This paper presents the process of selecting a semi-empirical fuel cell (FC) model for use in a real-time virtual PEM fuel cell system. A selection of FC models are reviewed using a list of key features and considering the final application of the model within a virtual fuel cell system (VFCS). As the model is intended for use within industry the selection process also considers ease of integration to existing industrial practices. From these, three suitable FC models were selected and evaluated analytically in greater detail. The chosen FC was then validated against results gathered from a Ballard Nexa 1.2kW FC.
