Abstract

Fuel cell-based energy generation has become more popular in distributed power generation systems in recent years due to their zero emissions, sustainability, and portability. This paper presents the small-signal model of a grid-connected polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cell system. The state-space modeling technique is used to model the fuel cell stack, boost converter, three-phase inverter and ac filter dynamics. Partial pressure dynamics of hydrogen, oxygen and water are included in fuel cell dynamics. The stability of the overall system is tested through eigenvalue analysis in MATLAB. Different case studies are developed to investigate the sensitivity of boost converter parameters and phase-locked loop (PLL) on the stability of the overall system.
