Development of Fuel Cell Hybrid Electric Vehicle Simulator and HCU
Based on the Matlab/Simulink module modeling for Fuel Cell Hybrid Electric Vehicle was carried out, which is comprised of the fuel cell stack model, a DC/DC converter model, a battery model, a motor model, avehiclemodel and a driver model, and Hybrid Control Unit(HCU) was developed. The HCU control strategy also incorporates regenerative braking and recharge for battery capacity recovery. Vehicle speed effect is evaluated in New Europe Driving Cycle. The simulation result that the control strategy implemented by HCU is achievable, and which proves that the mode of Start, Accele_FCBat, Cruise, RE_Brake, Power_FC and Pause operate sequently as well as reliably.
