ICEREGA’18 aims at gathering scientists and engineers from academia and industry to discuss the generation and applications in the broad field of renewable energy applications.

Hydrogen  based power generation system availability is significant factor affecting the reliability for fuel cells to be distributed energy resources. Reliable hydrogen sources need to be explored to improve the value added for fuel cell backup power units providing rid support. Compared with internal combustion generators and batteries, fuel cell systems are clean, efficient, and suitable for critical power supply needs. An interest is also purposed to the power electronics control system, providing adequate form of electrical energy to the connected loads (electrical motors usually).

This special session is dedicated to renewable energy connected to hydrogen based power generation systems, in the field of Fault Detection and Diagnosis, availability analysis and fault tolerant control. Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

  • Hydrogen based Power Generation Systems design and architectures.
  • Diagnosis of  hydrogen generation systems : hybrid Fuel cell power supply, high and low pressure hydrogen storage, electrolysis, CHP,….
  • Control schemes of hydrogen generation and storage systems in healthy and degraded modes.
  • Fault tolerant control of hydrogen generation and storage systems.
  • Availability and reliability of hydrogen generation and storage systems.

For  submission: send directly to the special session chairmen ( and ( addition to the online submission available on:

High-quality accepted papers that will be presented in the conference will be published in a scopus-indexed journal after passing the due peer review.
