Contract: W911NF-07-C-0102
Award Amount: $749,989.00
 

Abstract:

This work will continue the use of numerical methods to determine optimal design parameters for a compact hybrid fuel cell power system driven by a statistically determined load profile. Detailed physics-based models will be used to represent the bahavior of the components in the hybrid system. The components considered in the hybrid system for Phase II will be a PEM fuel cell, Li-ion batteries and electrochemical capacitors. For the design of hybrid systems, the component models will be implemented in VTB Pro. Existing methods for bound constrainted optimization will be used to design and optimize hybrid systems. Completion of Phase II will allow one to design accurately and specify hybrid systems subject to user-defined constraints.
