Title
(EN) CONTROL DEVICE, FUEL CELL UNIT, AND CONTROL METHOD

Abstract
(EN) An EMS (200) controls a fuel cell unit (150) comprising a cell stack (151B) which generates power by a chemical reaction, and an auxiliary machine (a reformer (151A), a blower (153), a desulfurizer (154), etc.) which supplements the operation of the cell stack (151B). The EMS (200) comprises a control unit (230) which instructs the fuel cell unit (150) to enter, as one operation mode, a temperature maintenance mode which carries out control which compensates for the power consumption of the auxiliary machine with power supplied from outside and control which maintains the temperature of a power generation unit in a prescribed temperature range. In the temperature maintenance mode, power outputted from the cell stack (151B) is at least less than the power consumption of the auxiliary machine.
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte à un système électromécanique (EMS pour ElectroMechanical System) (200) qui commande une unité de pile à combustible (150) comprenant un empilement de cellules (151B) qui produit de l'énergie par une réaction chimique, et une machine auxiliaire (un reformeur (151A), une soufflante (153), un désulfurant (154), etc.) qui complète le fonctionnement de l'empilement de cellules (151B). Le système EMS (200) comprend une unité de commande (230) qui donne comme instruction à l'unité de pile à combustible (150) de passer, comme seul mode de fonctionnement, à un mode de maintien de la température qui met à exécution la commande qui compense la consommation d'énergie de la machine auxiliaire avec l'énergie fournie depuis l'extérieur et une commande qui maintient la température d'une unité de production d'énergie dans une plage de température prescrite. Dans le mode de maintien de la température, l'énergie fournie par l'empilement de cellules (151B) est au moins inférieure à la consommation d'énergie de la machine auxiliaire.
(JA)  EMS200は、化学反応によって発電するセルスタック151B及びセルスタック151Bの動作を補助する補機(改質器151A、ブロワ153、脱硫器154等)を備える燃料電池ユニット150を制御する。EMS200は、燃料電池ユニット150に対し、補機の消費電力を外部から供給される電力によって賄う制御及び発電部の温度を所定温度域に維持する制御を行う温度維持モードを動作モードの一つとして指示する制御部230を備える。温度維持モードにおいて、セルスタック151Bから出力する電力は、少なくとも、補機の消費電力よりも小さい。
