In the pressure protection mode, the power generation unit (40) is started from the halt state to enter the working state to consume fuel in the fuel storage tank (10), and the gas pressure in the fuel storage tank (10) is accordingly reduced. Due to the adoption of the pressure protection mode, the power generation unit (40) can be automatically started according to the gas pressure of the fuel in the fuel storage tank (10), and the power battery (50) is charged by expanded redundant fuel. Therefore, the safety and waste problems in the prior art caused by the fact that expanded fuel, the pressure of which exceeds the threshold, in the fuel storage tank (10) is discharged into the atmosphere are solved.
