Simulation of the PEM fuel cell hybrid power train of an automated guided vehicle and comparison with experimental results
- Publisher: Hogeschool van Arnhem en Nijmegen
At HAN University research has been started into the development of a PEM fuel cell hybrid power train to be used in an automated guided vehicle. For this purpose a test facility is used with the possibility to test all important functional aspects of a PEM fuel cell hybrid power train. In this paper the first experimental results of the testing of the power train are presented, driving a drive cycle designed especially for this automated guided vehicle. Experimental results are compared to results for this specific drive cycle from the simulation of the power train with the QSS-toolbox, using a simple battery model of our specific energy storage situation. Further some recommendations for improvement of the test facility are given, resulting from restrictions encountered during the experiments.
