Preliminary Design of a PEM Fuel Cell Simulator Based on Digitally Controlled DC - DC Buck Converter


—Modeling of fuel cells is getting more and more important as power fuel cell stacks being available and have to be integrated into real power systems. This paper presents a novel circuit model for a PEM fuel cell that can be used to design fuel cell simulator. The model is consisted of a DC-DC buck converter driven by PIC 16F877 microcontroller. The model… (More)
