Optimization of Hydrogen Consumption for Fuel Cell Hybrid Vehicle


Objective: To minimize the hydrogen consumption in hybrid fuel cell/super capacitor vehicle tested with a proposed energy management. Methods: The studied system consists of two energy sources: namely Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cell and a super capacitor. So we propose a new architecture system controlled through a proposed energy flow management approach which determines the power demand between the PEM fuel cell, super capacitor and the load. Findings: The control strategy tested with the different driving cycle’s exhibit excellent performance in order to minimize the hydrogen consumption. A simulation model for the power train proposed is simulated and tested by using Matlab/ Simulink software, in order to verify the efficiency of our proposed approach. Applications: This work will be followed by implementing the proposed system on an embedded electronic board such us FPGAs, STM32s.
