Parametric Design of Series Power-Train for Fuel Cell Transit Bus 2004-01-2608
Utilizing the developed off-line simulation model of series power train for fuel cell transit bus, the study on the influence of components' parameters on acceleration performance and fuel economy of transit bus is completed. Based on these the guideline strategies of parametric design of series power train for fuel cell transit bus are brought forward in this paper. Given the condition of propulsion requirement the parametric design for this transit bus is performed targeting minimizing fuel consumption. It is conclusion that the appropriate components' parameters determined by means of parametric design can make fuel cell transit bus achieve much better acceleration performance and much lower fuel equivalent consumption than that of baseline transit bus.
