The challenge is a simulation-based competition: An open Matlab Simulink program is provided including a model of the vehicle, the local control and all the numerical parameters (experimentally validated). The teams should develop the best energy management strategy in order to minimize the operating cost. The scoring function takes into account hydrogen consumption and degradation of the fuel cell and battery. Several test driving cycles are provided but the scoring one is secret…
