Design and Realization of 60kW Fuel Cell Engine
Fuel cell is a promising power source for vehicles because of its advantages such as high efficiency, no pollutant of emissions and so on, according to the requirements of fuel cell middle bus powertrain system studied, 60kW automotive fuel cell engine is designed by our group in this paper. Firstly,the structure of the fuel cell engine is analysed, then according to the reliability design requirement, several design measures of the control system are given, then the hardware and software of both the main controller and single cells monitoring system are put forward, to enhance its output dynamic performance in practical operation, the adaptive optimized control strategies based on our experience and simulation results before are also given. Finally, according to the driving cycles, the testing results are presented to proves the good effects of the method adopted, which can provide a guidance to the further study on automotive fuel cell engine of other research organizations.
