The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has been exploring several renewable and green technologies to help reduce the increasing pollution rates. However, its coarse climate might impose some limitations toward the types of green technologies that can be effectively deployed in the region. In the first part of this work, an improved dynamic model of the Nexa 1.2 kW PEM fuel cell is developed using particle swarm optimization (PSO), and validated using experimental data. The developed model is then used to analyze the effect of the severe climate conditions of the UAE on the performance of the system to evaluate its operational compatibility with the region.
