Analysis and Simulation of a UAV Power System 2002-01-3175

Models for the components of a long-duration UAV power system are set forth. The models include the solar array, solar array power converter, fuel cell and electrolyzer system and corresponding power converter, and propulsion load. Based on these models, a power management control is derived, which when coupled with the component models, are used to simulate power system performance during start-up, through a day-night cycle, and through a solar eclipse.
