Abstract [en]

An agglomerate model for the porous anode was developed to study the influence of the porous structure. In the model migration of protons through the electrode and diffusion of hydrogen in spherical agglomerates and in a possible polymer film surrounding the agglomerates was included. Tafel-Volmer kinetics and a Langmuir isotherm was assumed. Both a steady-state and an electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, EIS, model was developed. Simulations with the steady-state model, using reasonable input parameters, showed that the anode is under mixed control of kinetics, hydrogen diffusion and proton migration. The EIS model gave a Nyquist plot with two semi-circles, a high frequency loop due to the double layer capacitance and a low frequency loop due to adsorption of hydrogen. The modelling results show that a realistic model for the anode must include migration and diffusion limitations.
