Abstract

The objective of this project was to design, fabricate and analyze a fuel cell-powered scooter. The stock scooter is powered by batteries that were to be continuously recharged by a hydrogen-fueled PEM fuel cell. This project eventually yielded a modified electric scooter operating directly with power supplied by the fuel cell, which also charged the battery via a battery charger. Limited analysis of the components and the scooter system were conducted and suggestions for future improvements were made.
