Detailed Design of a Fuel Cell Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle 2013-01-0560

Hydrogen Fuel Cell Plug in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (FCPHEV) offer the potential for zero tailpipe-emission personal transportation with extended range over many battery electric vehicles. As part of the EcoCAR 2 vehicle design competition Colorado State University (CSU) has undergone a complete vehicle design process for a FCPHEV. EcoCAR 2 is a three-year collegiate engineering competition challenging universities in North America to reduce the environmental impacts of a Chevrolet Malibu without compromising performance, safety and consumer acceptability. The detailed design phase is outlined and explained in this paper including component specification, safety, and control. The CSU FCPHEV is intended to serve as a demonstration for how hydrogen and electricity can meet future transportation needs for passenger vehicles.
