Abstract: A test platform for hybrid fuel cell engine powertrain is developed, and the principle and the structure for hardware, software and data acquisition system of the platform are presented in this paper. The platform for hybrid fuel cell engine powertrain consists of hybrid power system, load system, data acquisition system and control system. An experiment for a fuel cell engine is done. The test results indicate that the platform can satisfy the requirement for measuring the performances of fuel cell.

Keywords: fuel cell engines; hybrid power systems; test platform; hybrid fuel cells; powertrain; performance measurement; electric vehicles.
