This study concerns MC Formula and the table-based protocol hydrogen fueling methods described in SAE J2601 2016 edition fueling protocols for light duty gaseous hydrogen surface vehicles. It considers the overall efficiency and performance of the two methods. This is achieved by dynamic simulations, using the Dymola hydrogen fueling station library. The MC formula and table-based methods are implemented in the library and different simulations are performed, to evaluate the performance of the two different fueling methods under various conditions. The efficiency is evaluated according to; fueling time, State of Charge levels and total energy consumption. The MC formula is up to 26% faster. The state of charge levels are similar between the table-based and MC formula. The energy consumption for the MC formula is up to 6.9% higher than for the table-based method. Comparing consecutive fuelings without recharging the station, the table-based method is able to fill 7 vehicles and the MC formula 5 vehicles.
