Hardware-In-Loop Testing of Balance of Plant Controller of Fuel Cell System


Organizations across the industries are working on designing and integrating fuel cell stacks to reduce carbon emissions. To guarantee the safe and efficient integration and operation of fuel cell stack, a supervisory control system, called Balance of Plant, needs to be designed and tuned to operate set of subsystems in closed loop and coordinated manner. Deep understanding of operating principals of various fuel cell systems and their interaction with each other is must to design and test various software components of Balance of Plant Controller.

Join us to learn how modeling and simulating complete fuel cell stack, balance of power software components and other adjacent systems enables engineers from different domains to collaborate with each other and identify design issues early in the design phase. In this webinar, we will demonstrate how to:

  • Model fuel cell system in closed-loop using Simulink and Simscape
  • Design and simulate detailed controller logic and generate production quality code to target embedded controller
  • Thoroughly test controller logic in real-time with hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test bench using Simulink Real-Time and Speedgoat target machine 

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.

About the Presenter

Chirag Patel works with engineers working on control systems to streamline the transition from desktop simulations to real-time testing and hardware-in-loop (HIL) testing. Prior to joining MathWorks, Chirag worked at Lucid Motors, where he led the efforts of adopting Model-Based Design for electric powertrain, developed algorithms for battery management system and built HIL test system for vehicle control systems. While at Cessna Aircraft Company, Chirag developed simulations for electro-hydraulics systems, built iron bird test rigs for anti-skid brake systems, and designed integrated environmental control systems for business jets.
