We studied the full load behavior of a proton exchange membrane fuel- cell(PEMFC) stack at under different ambient temperatures. We switched a load to the FC system and observed the system parameters as FC temperature, current and voltage under two different ambient temperature. We extracted to ambient temperature effects on the power transferred to load. We also investigated the effect of hydrogen tube temperature and hydrogen tube pressure relation on FC system.
