A fuel cell converts chemical fuel to electricity through a chemical reaction in which the fuel is oxidized and electricity is generated. You can model a fuel cell with the generator component in HOMER. For example, to model a hydrogen fuel cell, add a Generator Component, set the fuel to stored hydrogen, and adjust the fuel curve to match the fuel cell's specifications.
