Fuel cell based power supply system needs a power conditioner to convert the low dc output voltage generated by the fuel cell into usable ac voltage for any practical application. For proper power conditioning design, fuel cell electrical characteristics as well as customer requirements are taken into account. This paper presents a design methodology and performance comparison for two different power conditioner architectures recommended for using in a stand-alone power generation system with… CONTINUE READING
