Proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) have been increasingly applied in clean and efficient distributed power generation systems in recent years. However, the output characteristics of PEMFC are relatively soft due to the influence of multiple polarization overvoltage. With the increasement of current density, the output voltage shows to be a nonlinear downward trend. In addition, in order to ensure the lifetime of PEMFC, the output ripple current is often concerned. Considering above characteristics, in order to achieve efficient power transmission of the PEMFC system, this paper adopts the current-fed dual-active full-bridge (DAB) DC/DC converter topology, which can achieve soft switching of most switches. Furthermore, it can restrain the characteristics of the current ripple. Hence, the power transmission efficiency and current ripple requirements of PEMFC are fulfilled. Finally the current-fed DAB is designed and simulated through PSIM. The C-block is applied to simulate the PEMFC nonlinear power supply according to the actual PEMFC parameters. In order to achieve efficient constant power transmission of the nonlinear PEMFC, a novel power closed-loop control strategy is proposed.
