Fuel Cell I-V Characteristic

This model represents a harness for calibration of fuel cell (FC) parameters. This example extracts I-V and power characteristic curves from a datasheet. The datasheet also contains specific properties such as the minimum and maximum hydrogen and the air flows.

The plot below shows the simulated and datasheet I-V characteristic for the fuel cell, the total stack power, and the voltage error between the simulation and the datasheet.

Results from Real-Time Simulation

This example has been tested on a Speedgoat Performance real–time target machine with an Intel® 3.5 GHz i7 multi–core CPU. This model can run in real time with a step size of 50 microseconds.
