A method of mutual humidification strategy is explored in this study making the best use of water production characteristics of proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) and anion exchange membrane fuel cell (AEMFC). And the results show that in the relatively dry outside humidification condition, the performance of PEMFC can be elevated in various extends. Technically, in the various extents of load, the performance changes show stable and consistent trend. With the electrochemical test measures, the principles of mutual humidification are investigated.
