Modeling a Hydrogen Fueling Station
Learn how you can use Simulink® and Simscape™ to model a gas system through a case study on a hydrogen fueling station model.
Watch how to:
- Model different components of a hydrogen fueling station, such as a hydrogen fuel tank, a compressor, a chiller, and a dispenser for fueling the vehicle.
- Incorporate sensor readings in the model to perform calculations on gas pressure, flow rate, and mass.
- Add multidomain physical effects such as gas cooling, pressure changes, and heat flow.
- Design supervisory logic and feedback control algorithms for software that manages key aspects of fueling station operations, such as controlling mass flow in the compressor.
- Parameterize components and switch between component variants such as an ideal compressor and a real compressor.
- Run simulations with different system configurations and measure key metrics in system operations to ensure the safety, efficiency, and durability of the fueling system.
