This paper describes the evaluation of fuel optimaltrajectories of a fuel cell powered vehicle along a givenroute. The optimization is based on the theory of Op-timal Control, which has been applied by means ofa control-oriented model developed for this purpose.The latter is a reduced complexity version of a phys-ical model of the fuel cell vehicle, whose derivationis presented in the paper. The model has been val-idated with respect to experimental data measuredon a test lightweight car under development at theSwiss Federal Institute of Technology.
