Abstract

Starting with the chassis of a 1969 Volkswagen Beetle, the goal of this project was to design and build a Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) hybrid vehicle that is powered by hydrogen. This thesis highlights the design process, modeling, and control of a Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell hybrid drive train. Finally, the vehicle was built with many of the components assembled, fabricated, and functioning.
