Why is water control so important to the effectiveness of a PEM fuel cell?

To determine

The effectiveness of PEM fuel cell depends on water control.

Explanation

In a fuel cell, our greatest challenge is associated with water control in a tank. This proton exchange membrane fuel cell helps in generating the required output for running vehicles. In the process, water is generated as an output. This may cause flooding of fuel cells or it may get dried up. Excess of water in this process may cause flooding of electrodes. This will cause reactant not to get diffused near the catalyst site.

Catalyst present at the anode will cause hydrogen atoms to break down into elements which are further transported to the cathode. The process of transporting hydrogen atom through proton membrane is named electro-osmosis...
