This paper introduces that the modeling of proton exchange fuel cell has been considered for MATLAB simulation of FC model. Additionally, the possible contrivance of the parametric effects and their interrelationships are deliberated. In this investigation, the significant operating parameters such as reactants (hydrogen and oxygen) flow pressures, membrane resistance, operating temperature are considered. The obtained results as IV or polarization curves have been carried out for the study of PEMFC behavior. The results show good pacts between the simulated and commercial available PEMFC model. Moreover, the power management schemes are designed and investigated.
