Electric Vehicle Propulsion System Prototype Based on Fuel Cell and Switched Reluctance Motor - Generator 2001-01-3889
This paper shows some aspects of the development of a fuel cell based propulsion system prototype for electric vehicles. A switched reluctance motor/generator - SRM/G - with 3 phases, 6 stator poles and 4 rotor poles is connected to the DC link bus through an asymmetric half-bridge converter which is fed by a PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) fuel cell. The control functions of this drive are performed by a 8 bit microcontroller. This system allows the studies of the motoring, generating and regenerative braking operations aiming the development of the necessary knowledge to design propulsion systems for several kinds of vehicles.
