Abstract

The DC–DC converter for fuel cell vehicles requires high gain and wide voltage input range to boost the voltage of the fuel cell. However, with the traditional boost converter, it is difficult to meet the requirements of the fuel cell vehicle power system. Based on a quasi-Z-source network DC–DC converter, this paper proposes a composite controller, which includes a feedforward compensation network and feedback control to meet the control robustness requirement of the fuel cell vehicle power system. The dynamic model of the converter is obtained by using the state space averaging method and the small-signal dynamic modeling method. The input voltage and load disturbance experiments are performed on the DC–DC converter. Moreover, the converter is tested under the worldwide harmonised light vehicle test procedure (WLTP) to validate the effectiveness of the proposed composite controller. The simulation and experiment results show that the proposed composite controller effectively enhances the converter’s ability to resist input and load disturbance, and improves the dynamic response performance of the DC–DC converter for fuel cell vehicles.
