I have 100 cells stacked on a fuel cell, each cell generates 100W of heat, how would could I in theory model the thermal behaviour of the stack, assuming it is in equilibrium with its ambient under steady state.

please help !

First off, don’t double post: fuel cell stack CFD modelling

Second, you would get more help if you at least attempted the problem and told us what you were stuck with.

i think since this is a heat transfer problem. I would need to model it as a convection model. is this correct ?

Yes, convection would be one part of it. Here’s a paper that might be a good start: https://www.fuelcellstore.com/blog-s...-pem-fuel-cell
