Boosting the electric power produced by hydrogen and air (oxygen).
The FC boost converter is a device for boosting the electric power generated by the fuel cell at higher voltage (approximately 650 V). Toyota developed a high-capacity FC boost converter. This made it possible to reduce the number of cells in the FC stack while using the same motors, inverters, and other components used in current mass-production hybrid units, significantly cutting costs and raising reliability. In addition, innovations to the voltage boosting control and case structure provide exceptionally quiet operation.
