In this paper, fault-tolerant explicit MPC control of fuel cell systems is presented. MPC is one of the control methodologies that allows to introduce fault-tolerance more easily. Here, this capability is extended using recent explicit MPC control theory. Explicit MPC control allows to derive offline the control without using optimization. Moreover, it allows to introduce as additional parameters faults since it is based on parametric programming. This makes possible to change in real-time controller parameters without recomputing the MPC controller or having a bank of pre-computed MPC controllers. Finally, the proposed approach is assessed on a known test bench PEM fuel cell system.
