An analysis of the Fuel Cell Pack with Different Drive Cycles 2019-28-2510

In the view of an eco-friendly environmental future, the major automotive manufacturers are making a move towards electric mobility. The electric vehicle helps to achieve Zero-emission. However, there are some limitations too. The zero-emission Battery electric vehicle (BEV) can provide a limited range only; the market penetration is getting difficult because of an energy storage capability. The addition of an electric vehicle with a fuel cell unit and a hydrogen supply unit can increase the range and the energy capacity of the system. Fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) system is faster to refill compared to plug-in Battery electric vehicle (BEV).
This study deals with a behavioral analysis of Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) Fuel cell; with different drive cycles. In this, a fuel cell model developed and simulated in the SIMULINK environment with different drive cycle and results were obtained. The fuel cell controls also were analyzed for the city start/stop cycle.
The results obtained from the different drive cycles simulations were analyzed and discussed in this paper. Also, the fuel cell system behavioral analysis experimented on the commercial vehicle. The experimental values observed on the vehicle are in correlation with modeled SIMULINK simulation results.
