This paper describes a modelling and dynamic control design process applicable to the development of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). After an introduction to advanced propulsion technologies the development of FCEVat DaimlerChrysler is described, followed by a discussion on hydrogen as a fuel for FCEV and the challenges related to hydrogen storage. It is essential for advanced vehicles to obtain a range comparable to that of mass production vehicles sold

A stochastic dynamic programming algorithm was developed and applied to the energy management of this FCEV, which allow fuel economy optimisation while keeping a good driveability.
