Abstract

Dynamic programming algorithms are widely used in motor vehicle fuel cells, and can help battery energy management control to perform error analysis. The paper designs the decision-making process of fuel cell charge and discharge management based on the state transition energy management algorithm, which is used to analyse the cumulative causes of errors and the corresponding results. The article uses simulation software to simulate the algorithm proposed in this paper, and finds that the algorithm is an energy management optimization decision, and the error of the hydrogen consumption obtained by the algorithm relative to the theoretical optimal hydrogen consumption is less than 0.25%.
