The microbial fuel cell utilizes the natural metabolic activity of microorganisms in the production of electrical current. This project developed a computer simulation of the standard fuel cell apparatus using Stella modeling software. The resultant model can be adapted to fit a wide range of variations in the standard fuel cell theme to allow for the prediction of the behavior of the fuel cell under different conditions. The model predicts the general biochemical responses of the microorganisms in the fuel cell and provides a means to track electron flow through a closed circuit approach to the fuel cell..
