Comparing fuzzy rule-based MPPT techniques for fuel cell stack applications

Project Code :TEMISI11


The main objective of this project is to compare fuzzy based MPPT techniques (Mamdani & Sugeno controllers) for fuel cell stack applications.


In this Paper presents, Fuel cells are also candidates for maximum power extraction as their output powers are affected by internal limitations and operating parameters. At each operating time, the system needs to be constrained through MPPT controllers to provide continuously as much power as possible to avoid low efficiency and excessive fuel use. Various techniques can be employed for MPPT controllers design. This paper investigates MPPT controllers based on fuzzy inference system techniques; the objective is to compare Mamdani and Sugeno controllers’ time response. The investigation is conducted on a 50 kW PEMFC stack coupled to a power electronics converter and a DC load. The simulation is carried out under Mat lab/Simulink environment.

Keywords: Fuel Cell, Pulse Generator, Fuzzy Logic Controller, DC-DC Converters, Maximum Power Point Tracking.
