Analysis of PEM Fuel Cell Power Supply for Grid Interface Using ANN Controller
A non-conventional energy system has developing to supply electricity in rural areas as well as distributed generation. Fuel Cell systems supply electricity in peak load time is the most advantages than compared to the other non-conventional methods. The applications for various purposes are due to its purity, movability, and suitability for electricity and heat generation. Designing of a suitable power electronic interface to make the technology viable is still a challenge. This project presents simulation of PEM Fuel Cell Power Plant using ANN controller to improve the system efficiency. Hydrogen-based PEM fuel cells have no onsite emissions other than water vapour and heat, making them ideal for indoor electricity generation requirements. PEM fuel cells operate quietly and cause almost no vibrations. Because they operate at low temperatures, dissipated heat from PEM fuel cells has limited cogeneration potential. The simulation model is developed in MATLAB environment.
