This paper describes an integrated model for a Photon Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell generator including the power conditioning devices that can be used as a micro grid. The main focus here is the development of a detailed model of the fuel cell, power conditioning devices and a Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) with no major assumptions. To this end nonlinear models for PEM fuel cell generator, power conditioning devices and controllers are designed and built in Matlab® and Simulink® and the integrated designs are validated. Then several case studies are performed to operate the proposed integrated model as a micro-grid. Overall vision is to validate this model with real-life system and generate smart controller for the micro-grid that could be implemented in real-time as a Distributed Generator (DG).
