FC system management studies

The management of a fuel cell vehicle has been analysed on two levels: the first from the driveline point of view, the second from the fuel cell system point of view. The energy management of a load leveller vehicle (fuel cell and energy storage as power sources) in different operational conditions has been analysed in order to implement the control strategies on the VMU according to driver requirements.

Concerning the fuel cell system, the study focussed especially on two topics:
- the influence of pressure and temperature on power requirements due to the air system
- the humidification issue, looking at possible technological solutions to satisfy membrane water content requirements
