    • System analysis (BoP components specification)
    • Durability (e.g. valve actuation)
    • Validated models
    • MiL (Model in the loop) environment capability
  • Vehicle Simulation:
    • Operating strategy definition and development
    • Thermal management concepts development
    • Battery capacity definition
    • Drive cycle simulation
    • Validated models
    • MiL environment capability
  • Balance of Plant Layout:
    • Inputs
      • Target performance
      • System operating modes
      • Compressor (and expansion turbine) maps
      • Characteristics of recirculation (Hydrogenpump)
      • Performance curves of humidifiers
      • Integration of in-vehicle (production) controls
    • Simulation of different ambient conditions
  • BoP components w/ complex modeling in simulation:
    • Jetpump
      • Information transfer between stack inlet, outlet and recirculation path
      • Supersonic conditions at primary nozzle
      • Purging interferes with “usual operation”
    • Passive Humidifier
      • Sizing of passive bypass throttle to maintain a specific mass flow
      • Water transport
      • Thermal coupling (Coupling of wet and dry side to improve accuracy of simulation)
  • Controls/ Co-Simulation:
    • Fixed time step – model discretization
      • Performance-accuracy tradeoff (optimal time step)
        •  Continuous <-> Discrete domains
      • Control parameter gains tuning
        • Cascaded control architecture
        • Sampling time selection
      • Continuous development of plant environment
        •  Integration through reference subsystems
    • Example: Model validation:
      • Setup of 1D- fuel cell system model and validation by chassis roller dyno and fuel cell test bench results
      • Base for:
        • Development of operating strategy
        • Fuel cell and battery sizing
        • Integration of in-vehicle (production) controls
