This recommended practice is intended to serve as a procedure to verify the functional performance, design specifications or vendor claims of any PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) type fuel cell stack sub-system for automotive applications. In this document, definitions, specifications, and methods for the functional performance characterization of the fuel cell stack sub-system are provided. The functional performance characterization includes evaluating electrical outputs and controlling fluid inputs and outputs based on the test boundary defined in this document.
In this document, a fuel cell stack sub-system is defined to include the following:
Fuel cell stack(s) – An assembly of membrane electrode assemblies (MEA), current collectors, separator plates, cooling plates, manifolds, and a supporting structure.
Connections for conducting fuels, oxidants, cooling media, inert gases and exhausts.
Electrical connections for the power delivered by the stack sub-system.
Devices for monitoring electrical loads.
Devices for monitoring cell voltage.
Instrumentation for detecting normal and/or abnormal operating conditions.
Enclosures (that may qualify as pressure vessels), and ventilation systems for the enclosure.
Not included in the sub-system are the following:
Fuel and air processors
Thermal management system
Power conditioner and distributor
The committee cannot find users for the technical report.

The Fuel Cell Standards Committee is responsible for establishing standards for hydrogen and fuel cell vehicles. Standards will cover the safety aspects of hydrogen, fuel cell, and electrical systems in the vehicle, test procedures to establish the performance of the vehicle, system/components, and interface requirements.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
