This report covers efforts by the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute HNEI of the University of Hawaii under the ONR-funded Ion Tiger UAV award that included testing of Ion Tiger fuel cell stacks in HNEIs Hawaii Fuel Cell Test Facility located in Honolulu, Hawaii. Work was focused on steady-state stack characteristics of Protonex fuel cell stacks under various operating conditions. In addition, Hardware-in-the-Loop testing was performed to characterize dynamic limitations due to balance-of-plant components, effect of hybridization on performance and stability, and operational strategies to maximize fuel usage.
