In the paper a system aimed at hydrogen production through electrolysis from renewable source (PV, wind generators), its storage and reconversion in fuel cells is presented. It is a prototype which is being implemented at the “Mediterranea” University of Reggio Calabria (Italy) in order to investigate the improvement potentiality of the whole process in relation to both weather and load conditions. The analysis here presented is aimed at a preliminary simulation of the system with a view to assessing the global amount of hydrogen that can be produced during a year using the renewable sources, that are being installed at the site, as power input. The result has to be considered as a first stage to outline the load which can be supplied also considering the dimension of the hydrogen tank.

Abstract

In the paper a system aimed at hydrogen production through electrolysis from renewable source (PV, wind generators), its storage and reconversion in fuel cells is presented. It is a prototype which is being implemented at the “Mediterranea” University of Reggio Calabria (Italy) in order to investigate the improvement potentiality of the whole process in relation to both weather and load conditions. The analysis here presented is aimed at a preliminary simulation of the system with a view to assessing the global amount of hydrogen that can be produced during a year using the renewable sources, that are being installed at the site, as power input. The result has to be considered as a first stage to outline the load which can be supplied also considering the dimension of the hydrogen tank.
