Title
(EN) A CONTROLLER FOR FUEL CELL OPERATION
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE COMMANDE POUR FONCTIONNEMENT DE PILE À COMBUSTIBLE
Abstract
(EN)
The current invention is a fuel cell controller that includes a first control loop, where the first control loop is disposed to adjust a fuel cell current to regulate a hydrogen output pressure from the fuel cell to a pressure target valve, and further includes a second control loop disposed to adjust a hydrogen flow rate from a hydrogen generator to match a DC/DC power output to a power target value.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un dispositif de commande de pile à combustible qui comprend une première boucle de commande, la première boucle de commande étant agencée pour régler le courant de la pile à combustible afin de réguler la pression d'hydrogène à la sortie de la pile à combustible selon une valeur de pression prédéterminée, et une seconde boucle de commande agencée pour régler le débit d'hydrogène provenant d'un générateur d'hydrogène afin de faire correspondre la sortie d'électricité en courant continu à une valeur électrique prédéterminée.
