access icon free Energy management strategy for a fuel cell hybrid vehicle based on maximum efficiency and maximum power identification

This paper addresses the energy management strategy (EMS) for a fuel cell hybrid electric vehicle (FC-HEV). The fuel cell system (FCS) is a multi-physics system, and consequently, its energetic performances depend on the degradation and on the operating conditions. The maximum power (MP) and the maximum efficiency (ME) points of the FCS are unique but they move with operating condition variations. Thus, developing an extremum seeking process (ESP) for both MP and ME tracking is a challenging task. In the ESP, models are identified online by using an adaptive recursive least square (ARLS) method to seek a variation in the FCS performances. Then an optimisation algorithm is used on the updated model to find the MP and the ME points. The ESP is incorporated into a hysteresis power splitting control (HPSC). A MP mode or a ME mode can be set based on the energy storage level (battery pack). The effectiveness of the proposed MP- and ME-ESP EMS is demonstrated by conducting experimental studies on two FCSs with different levels of degradation. It was demonstrated that the classical EMS based on maps are not valid when the operating parameters vary because of the level of degradation change.
