A FUEL CELL MODEL FOR BUILDING COGENERATION APPLICATIONS

Alex Ferguson, Ismet Ugursal

Abstract: A quasi steady state model for cogeneration PEM fuel cell systems has been developed for use in integrated building simulation. The model can predict the fuel cell system fuel use, and heat and electricity production in response to building loads. The model, including theory, structure and validation is discussed, and preliminary results demonstrating the model's use with a building simulation program are presented.
