Recently, demand of Green vehicles is increasing to reduce environmental pollution. Green vehicles are include hybridelectric vehicles, electric vehicles, natural-gas (CNG) vehicles, clean-diesel vehicles, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (FCV), and vehicles that run on fuels such as biodiesel or an ethanol blend (flex-fuel vehicles, or FFVs). In this study, design of a solenoid valve for fuel cell vehicle pressure vessel using electromagnetic field analysis was done. FCV are equipped with solenoid valve installed in ultra high pressure vessel for hydrogen flow control on or off. The solenoid valve needs the optimum design of solenoid and plunger because pressure vessel at a ultra high storage pressure of hydrogen. For this purpose, optimum design of the solenoid valve is necessary to secure driving a FCV. First, CFD analysis was performed by steady state technique according to the inlet and outlet pressure for prediction of attraction force of solenoid valve. Second, electromagnetic field analysis performed by magnetostatic technique at some design parameter for optimum design of solenoid valve component.
