Fuel Cells: Modeling, Control, and Applicationsby Bei Gou
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Based in large part on research conducted at the U. of Texas at Arlington, this book provides an introduction to the modeling and control design of polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells. Written for those who already have a fundamental knowledge of control theory and fuel cell chemical reactions, the volume presents the linear and nonlinear modeling of fuel cell dynamics; discusses the typical approaches of linear and nonlinear modeling and control design methods for fuel cells; presents the Simulink implementation of fuel cells; discusses the applications of fuel cells in vehicles, utility power systems, and stand-alone systems; and describes the modeling and analysis of renewable energy systems, which includes the integration of fuel cells, wind power, and solar power, together with details of configuration and control schemes. The exact contents of the accompanying CD-ROM are not described in the text. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Fuel Cells: Modeling, Control, and Applications describes advanced research results on modeling and control designs for fuel cells and their hybrid energy systems. Filled with simulation examples and test results, it provides detailed discussions on fuel cell modeling, analysis, and nonlinear control.
The book begins with an introduction to fuel cells and fuel cell power systems as well as the fundamentals of fuel cell systems and their components. It then presents the linear and nonlinear modeling of fuel cell dynamics, before discussing typical approaches of linear and nonlinear modeling and control design methods for fuel cells. The authors also explore the Simulink implementation of fuel cells, including the modeling of PEM fuel cells and control designs. They cover the applications of fuel cells in vehicles, utility power systems, stand-alone systems, and hybrid renewable energy systems. The book concludes with the modeling and analysis of hybrid renewable energy systems, which integrate fuel cells, wind power, and solar power. Mathematical preliminaries on linear and nonlinear control are provided in an appendix.
With the need for alternative power well established, we are seeing unprecedented research in fuel cell technology. Written by scientists directly involved with the research, this book presents approaches and achievements in the linear and nonlinear modeling and control design of PEM fuel cells.
Filled with simulation examples and test results, this book describes advanced research results on modeling and control designs for fuel cells and its hybrid energy systems. It discusses novel nonlinear control design for PEM fuel cells, explores dynamic modeling of PEM fuel cells, and compares linear and nonlinear control designs and their effectiveness. The authors present the Simulink implementation of the dynamic model and nonlinear control of fuel cells and illustrate the integration of fuel cells as distributed generators in utility power system load flow analysis. They also cover applications of fuel cells in vehicles, utility power systems, and hybrid renewable energy systems.
