A balance of plant (BOP) system for a 9.5-kWe Nedstack P9.5-75 low-temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cell (FC) stack was tested up to a power of 2 kWe. The system has been designed to act as a range extender for a series hybrid electric vehicle driven under urban duty cycles. Vehicle simulations have estimated that an average gross power requirement of 4 kWe is needed from the FC, whilst simulations of the FC stack and BOP components have allowed for characterisation of transient behaviour and performance degradation.
