  "abstract": "<p>This paper presents the modeling and simulation of a&nbsp;hybrid proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) with an energy&nbsp;storage system for use in a stand-alone distributed generation (DG)&nbsp;system. The simulation model consists of fuel cell DG, lead-acid&nbsp;battery, maximum power point tracking and power conditioning unit&nbsp;which is modeled in the MATLAB/Simulink platform. Poor loadfollowing&nbsp;characteristics and slow response to rapid load changes are&nbsp;some of the weaknesses of PEMFC because of the gas processing&nbsp;reaction and the fuel cell dynamics. To address the load-tracking&nbsp;issues in PEMFC, a hybrid PEMFC and battery storage system is&nbsp;considered and modelled. The model utilizes PEMFC as the main&nbsp;energy source whereas the battery functions as energy storage to&nbsp;compensate for the limitations of PEMFC.Simulation results are&nbsp;given to show the overall system performance under light and&nbsp;heavyloading conditions.</p>",
