Fuel cell vehicle (FCV) is the focus of new energy vehicles research, in which the study of the powertrain is one of the crucial. This paper introduces the structure and working principle of the FCV powertrain, and analyses the critical powertrain components. According to complex and multi-domain characteristics of the powertrain, this paper presents an object-oriented modeling language to unify the physical modeling method and establish the physical model of FCV powertrain and the critical components base upon Maplesim platform. Using combined simulation based on Maplesim and Simulink and the results show the effectiveness of the model.
