The performance of Proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) has been experimentally investigated. An experimental set-up was designed to study the effects of operating parameters such as cell temperature, gas humidification, and cell operating pressure on the performance of fuel cell. The results indicated that the output power increase with the increase of humidification ratio. Furthermore, an increase of cell pressure results in a significant increase of cell power. The results indicated that increasing of the temperature leads to a decrease of cell power. The results are explained and discussed in more details for different operational parameters.
