Systematic Design of Fuel Cell Powered Hybrid Vehicle Drive Train Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • A general design methodology of the fuel cell powered hybrid vehicle drive train has been developed. With the methodology and a computer simulation program, all of the systematic parameters can be designed, such as, the rated power of the electric motor drive, fuel cell system, peaking power source as well as the energy capacity. An overall control strategy has also been developed. The main function of the control strategy is to properly control the power produced by the fuel cell system and the peaking power source, so as to meet the power demand, maintain the energy level of the peaking power source in its optimal region and operate the fuel cell system within its high efficiency region. In this paper, a design example has also been introduced in each section. Copyright 2001 Society of Automotive Engineers, Inc.
