Abstract

A satisfactory transient behavior is one of the critical requirements of the fuel cell system for both automotive and residential applications. A well-designed control system is needed in order to provide fast and consistent transient behavior of the fuel cell system. The overall system for a typical polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEM-FC) consists of four main subsystems, namely, reactant supply, heat and temperature, water management, and power management subsystems. Additional complexities arise for the system with a hydrogen fuel processor that converts carbon-based fuel into hydrogen. Interactions among the subsystems lead to complex control problems.
