Experimental study of drivetrain configurations in fuel cell city bus

Chen Yong, Qiu Bin, Han Xiaodong, Chen Quanshi


The layout of a fuel cell city bus and the structure of the vehicle controller unit are outlined. The bus is field-tested with the drivetrain configuration, both with and without DC-DC converter, and the test data is acquired through controller area network. Since configurations vary in specifications and have both advantages and disadvantages the choice of the drivetrain configuration depends upon the need and suitability.
