A one-dimensional model for a porous fuel cell electrode using a liquid electrolyte with dissolved reactant is presented. The model consists of a Poisson, second-order ordinary differential equation, describing the effect of the electric field and a one-dimensional; Fickian diffusion, second-order ordinary differential equation describing the concentration variation associated with diffusion. The model accounts for mass transport and heterogeneous electrochemical reaction. The solution of this model is by the approximate Adomian polynomial method and is used to determine lateral distri-butions of concentration, overpotential and current density and overall cell polarisation. The model is used to simulate the effects of important system and operating parameters, i.e. local diffusion rates, and mass transport coefficients and electrode polarisation behaviour.
