This paper presents a 300 W single-phase high frequency uninterrupted power supply (UPS) with backup proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) and battery, DC/AC inverter, DC/DC converter, AC/DC rectifier, and AC/DC recharger. The principle and structure of the PEMFC/battery hybrid UPS system are introduced and discussed. Key practical techniques of the design are presented, including the design of the PEMFC generating system, the control technique of the AC/DC rectifier, AC/DC recharger, DC/AC inverter and DC/DC converter based on a microcomputer MC68HC11K4 and other integrated circuit chips. Experimental results show that during the switching process from battery to PEMFC, and vice versa, the UPS can provide an uninterrupted alternate voltage for the load, with low cost, low weight, small volume and size, great reliability and maintainability.
