Fuel cell systems for vehicular applications

Description

The phosphoric acid fuel cell is used as the base line in these evaluations. Two cell sizes (15 and 60 kW) and two fuel options (methanol and propane) are included. Four vehicle types, the city bus, highway bus, delivery van, and general-purpose consumer car are selected for evaluation. Typical drive cycles and economics for these vehicles are compiled, and comparisons are made between the fuel-cell vehicle and current internal-combustion and diesel-engine vehicles. The conclusions of these evaluations are briefly related. Then, the initial results of two aspects of the fuel-cell-powered vehicle evaluation program ongoing at LASL are described. The first ... continued below

Four vehicle types, the city bus, highway bus, delivery van, and general-purpose consumer car are selected for evaluation.

The conclusions of these evaluations are briefly related. Then, the initial results of two aspects of the fuel-cell-powered vehicle evaluation program ongoing at LASL are described. The first part of the program presents the results of detailed computer simulations to illustrate a number of the important system-design considerations in configuring a fuel cell/battery electric vehicle. The next program describes a fuel-cell-powered golf cart currently being used as an engineering test bed. (MCW)
