Abstract

In this paper, a state machine-based control architecture for a Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) is proposed. The considered Fuel Cell System (FCS) is a complex system with multiple different states of operation. This includes the start-up, run, shut-down and idle states, which have been identified as the states of a State Machine (SM). Furthermore, the FCS incorporates several subsystems; namely, as the cathode, anode and thermal subsystems and the DC/DC converter that all have different modes of operation. In each specific state of the FCS, the subsystems should operate in a specific predefined mode. A control structure is therefore necessary to coordinate these subsystems and the stack in the different FCS operation states and the operation modes of the different subsystems. This work describes in detail the SM designed for the fuel cell system of the FCEV of the INN-BALANCE project.
