To work at maximum power point for the
Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) is
important. Because, the PEM fuel cell has a limited
ability to produce electrical power, Extremum Seeking
Control (ESC) of a PEMFC connected to the cascade
DC-DC boost converter is presented in this article. Thus,
the PEMFC is operated under optimum conditions and
the simulation results are obtained in the
Matlab/Simulink environment.
