Abstract: Fuel Cell Vehicles (FCV’s) are gaining more attention in the present scenario as it overcomes the disadvantages of internal combustion engine vehicles and electric vehicles. FC technology for automotive applications is an attractive prospect for automotive manufacturers and consumers. But one of the main barriers for the adoption of FCV’s is the increased cost of fuel cell stack. Also the FC stack voltage reduction while accelerating is another problem as power reduces at high speeds with increase in current. This paper presents a 10 hp PMSM drive with reduced size and cost with 8 KW fuel cell stack for FCV applications fed from EF2 resonant converter which improves the dynamic performance and system reliability. The simulation result which validates the enhanced performance is also produced.
Keywords: Fuel Cells (FC’s), Fuel Cell Stack, Dynamic Response, Reliability.
