This paper proposes a parallel energy-sharing control for fuel cell hybrid vehicles (FCHVs) application. The hybrid source consists of fuel cells (FCs) stack, battery packs and Ultracapacitor (UC) modules. In the proposed parallel energy sharing control, each source is connected to a DC bus via power electronics converters. A total of six control loops are applied in the supervisory system in order to regulate the DC bus voltage, control of power flow and at the same time to monitor the state of charge (SOC) of each energy storage device. Simulation with experiment verifications are carried out to verify the proposed energy control system.
