This example shows a fuel cell powertrain modeled in Simscape. A single fuel cell stack in parallel with a battery powers a single motor that propels the vehicle. The fuel cell is modeled using a custom domain to track the different species of gas that are used in the fuel cell. The vehicle can be tested on custom drive cycles or using the Drive Cycle Source from Powertrain Blockset.
Open the project Fuel_Cell_Vehicle.prj to get started.

@Sara Luciani: The example has been updated to follow the charge sustaining algorithm. A boost converter that follows the commanded fuel cell current has been swapped in for the abstract DC-DC converter. Thanks for the feedback! --Steve
Hi Sara - the algorithm is capable of sustaining the battery charge, but the electrical network is simplified (for simulation speed) and is not taking those control signals into account. We will upload a new version that sustains charge as soon as we can. Thanks for the great question. --Steve
can you confirm if in the model a charge sustaining approach is considered? If yes, how is it implemented?
I tried to run some driving cycle but the battery SOC expires before the end of the cycle.
any Reference Paper?
Hi, I am not able to run the the project and therefore the additional library and the overall model (to simulate the system)! Do u have any tips to help me?
