Abstract To maintain optimum performance of the electrical

response of a fuel cell, a real time identification of the

malfunction situations is required. Critical fuel cell states depend,

among others, on the variable demand of electric load and are

directly related to the membrane hydration level. The real time

perception of relevant states in the PEM fuel cell states space, is

still a challenge for the PEM fuel cell control systems. Current

work presents the design and implementation of a methodology

based upon fuzzy decision techniques that allows real time

characterization of the dehydration and flooding states of a PEM

fuel cell. Real time state estimation is accomplished through a

perturbation-perception process on the PEM fuel cell and further

on voltage oscillation analysis. The real time implementation of

the perturbation-perception algorithm to detect PEM fuel cell

critical states is a novelty and a step forwards the control of the

PEM fuel cell to reach and maintain optimal performance.
