Among the number of fuel cells in existence, the proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) has been favored because of its numerous applications. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) plays an important role in the development by providing in-depth analysis of PEMFCs gained from studying fluid flow and heat and mass transfer phenomena. The output obtained is useful for reducing the need for expensive prototypes and cutting down test-time by a substantial amount. This research is aimed at investigating the advances made in the use of CFD as a technique for the optimization of PEMFCs and studying the effect of some parameters on the performance of the fuel cell (FC) model, by using a new hybrid approach of CFD and Simultaneous Hybrid Exploration that is Robust, Progressive and Adaptive (SHERPA). to study, evaluate and improve the performance.
