The durability and reliability of producing high quality power for long periods of time have the potential to be the leading marketing factors for future hydrogen and fuel cell power sources.  Improvements to current real-world environment durability levels is limited by a lack of understanding of the state of the cell/stack, coupled with the lack of ability to deal with data in an informed manner to support decision making throughout the lifecycle to optimise performance.  The research presented will cover advances in failure modelling techniques applied to the fuel cell and how diagnostic approaches have added to the intelligent health monitoring capability, to enable maximised lifecycle performance. Providing an intelligent information infrastructure leading to smarter, optimised cells has required leading edge research to semantically model relationships between the cell and environmental data coupled with the necessity of performance techniques which enable systems to be optimally designed for reliability, with an intelligent diagnostic and prognostic capability.
