Study on the Control Algorithm of Series Power Train for Fuel Cell Transit Bus 2004-01-2607
Developed control algorithm of series power train for fuel cell transit bus is presented systematically, which keeps fuel cell pack's operation points on the locus of highest efficiency. The off-line simulation model of series power train for fuel cell transit bus is developed which includes sub-models of control system and controlled objective (such as fuel cell pack, motor, battery pack and so on). The debug and validation of control algorithm is performed on developed modular test facility. The results show that developed control algorithm can effectively keep fuel cell pack's operating on the locus of high efficiency points and much more fuel economy can be achieved than that of conventional ICE power train, meanwhile battery SOC can be maintained within reasonable level without charging outside during cycles.
