The main aims of the study on the title subject are to integrate a 20 kWesolid polymer fuel cell (SPFC) system with a methanol reformer, batteries and an electric motor, to design and to construct a control system for the integrated fuel cell system, and to test the integrated system under real operational conditions. Attention is paid to the tasks divided over the partners, the activities of ECN, HOLEC and TNO. An overview is given of the results of the first phase with regard to the system analysis and control, the SPFC stacks, the air compression system, the Volkswagen G40 scroll compressor, the Mitsubishi turbocharger, the Grassair WIS compressor, and the battery package. The knowledge, acquired from the integration project, can be used for the application of such systems in electric vehicles, for finding solutions to problems occurring when integrating the different sub-systems, and to be able to model the performances of a vehicle, equipped with such an integrated system. 7 figs., 1 tab., 3 refs.
