Fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) use energy to power an electrical motor, very like fully electric cars do. Unlike other electric cars, FCEVs create their own electricity through the employment of a cell fuelled by hydrogen instead of relying only on electric battery. the scale of the electrical motor(s) that get power from the suitably sized electric cell and battery amalgamation establishes the facility of the vehicle during the vehicle design phase, in line with the vehicle manufacturer. Although automakers could design an FCEV with plug-in functionality to charge the battery, the bulk of FCEVs today use the battery for energy recovery from braking, extra power during brief acceleration events, and to free the ability delivered from the electric cell with the choice to idle or close up the electric cell during low power needs. the dimensions of the hydrogen fuel tank affects what proportion energy will be stored on board. In contrast to an all-electric vehicle, where the quantity of power and energy available is directly correlated with the dimensions of the battery.

Key Components of a Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Car

Electric traction motor (FCEV): This motor propels the wheels of the car using energy from the electric cell and therefore the traction battery pack. Some automobiles employ motor generators that function both drives and regenerators.

Fuel cell and traction battery voltage flow is managed by the facility electronics controller (FCEV), which also regulates the torque and speed of the electrical traction motor.

Thermal system (cooling) - (FCEV): this technique keeps the electric cell, motor, power electronics, and other components within a secure operating temperature range.

Electric transmission: the electrical traction motor drives the wheels by transferring energy through the transmission.
