A model is presented to predict the local pressure and chemical composition in the anode and cathode sides of a liquid feed direct methanol fuel cell. The model is based on the homogeneous two-phase flow theory and mass conservation equation, which describes the hydraulic behaviour of an experimental large cell. The model allows an assessment of the effect of the operating parameters: inlet temperature, current density, flow rates and pressure, on the pressure losses, fluid compositions and chemical equilibrium.
