Abstract

The plug-in fuel cell hybrid electric vehicle (PFCHEV) possesses the features of a battery EV and fuel cell hybrid electric vehicle (FCHEV). The PFCHEV provide a remarkably efficient driving range due to the integration of distinct energy sources. However, the range depends on the capacity of the energy sources, such as the battery and hydrogen storage tank. Considering the Indian geographical scenario, there is a lack of hydrogen refuelling stations and technology challenges. However, at present, in India, the technology development and installation of EV battery charging infrastructures enabled with fast charging are rapidly growing to make EVs feasible by solving a range anxiety issues. Therefore, in this paper, a novel battery charging methodology is proposed for PFCHEVs from the grid, DC fast charging station to achieve the desired range. This method may help to optimize the battery size and hydrogen fuel tank capacity without affecting the range of PFCHEVs.
