The article presents mathematical model designed to estimate the rate of performance decrease in fuel cell stack. The fuel cell stack performance decrease rate is determined on the basis of stack average voltage measurements. The proposed model is used to determine power curve as well as exploitation indicators of fuel cell stack with a nominal power of 50 kW after 14 000 hours of continuous operation. The model is also used to determine the average voltage drop for the eleven-year fuel cell stack with a nominal power of 1,2 kW. In both studies, the values of exploitation indicators as well as their differences in relation to nominal values are determined.
