Abstract
This paper focuses on the design of a controller for a low temperature ethanol steam reformer for the production of hydrogen to feed a Protonic Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell. It describes different control structures for the reformer and treats the control structure selection of this Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) system. For each control structure, decentralised 2x2 controllers are implemented and a Proportional Integral (PI) control action is implemented in each control loop. The PI...
