A membrane humidifier is a device to provide water vapor into the proton exchange membrane fuel cell stack that is used for transportation application due to global warming. Since inadequate humidification severely affects the performance and durability of a fuel cell stack, it is necessary to equip the humidifier for delivery humidification into the fuel cell vehicle.

In this study, the performance of humidification in hollow fiber membrane is investigated. While the test section is exposed to external humidity condition, dry air is provided through hollow fiber membrane so that the water transport is facilitated. Since various parameters can change the performance, the performance investigation has to be carried out with parameters. In this study the water transport of hollow fiber membrane is investigated in terms of principle operating conditions such as temperature, pressure, and flow rate.
