Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC,volume 1122)


This paper presents the design and control of a two-input bi-directional DC-DC converter (BDC) and implements it for driving a Fuel-cell based three-phase induction motor drive. The Fuel-cell hybrid electric vehicle (FC-HEV) powertrain mainly consists of dc-source, DC-DC converter, inverter, and a driving motor. Usually the single source is used for powering electric vehicles (EVs). However, due to a single source the range of EVs is limited. In this study, two separate dc sources (battery and fuel-cell) are hybridized using a multiport BDC. This BDC is utilized to power FC-HEV drivetrain. The FC-HEVs have to operate in powering mode and braking mode, the performance of induction motor drive in forward powering mode and regenerative braking mode has been discussed. Moreover, for controlling purpose the v/f control is implemented to enhance the performance of EV drive and the simulation results have been obtained in MATLAB environment.
