The aim of the paper is to evaluate the technical feasibility and aspects related to the use, in anUninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), of fuel cells instead of traditional electrochemical batteries. The proposed system,named UPS-FCB (Fuel Cell Based) presents a modular and versatile system configuration; particularly it is possible tointegrate it with traditional UPS. Moreover the system features can be modified in terms of power, reliability, back-uptime, etc., by changing the power devices. A detailed experimental analysis has been carried out on a passive stand-byUPS integrated with a FCB; experimental results can be easily extended to the other possible system architectures.
