RESULTS and DISCUSSION

Electrolyser operation

Protective polarisation

Mean values:

DC current: 2.5 A

DC voltage: 61 V

DC power: 0.15 kW

AC power: 0.35 kW

  • Protective polarisation applied for 27 weeks consumes 1.6 MWh

  • NO protective polarisation thanks to activated electrodes!

RESULTS and DISCUSSION

  • Several lessons learned from the realisation of the plant until now:

  • Interfacing of the various units is key, in relation to hydrogen flow, electricity

    • and information flow

  • - Minimisation of buffer tank volume

  • - Transportation and installation issues in remote areas with poor access

  • - PLC based control system is safer but less flexible than PC based

  • Protection of hardware from nature’s elements, theft and even wild animals

  • Special care for the integration of auxiliaries, vital for safe operation

CONCLUSIONS

  • The wind-hydrogen system installed at the wind park of CRES operates well

  • System efficiency from AC power to compressed hydrogen fuel: 50% (HHV)

  • Important margins for efficiency increase

    • power electronics of the electrolyser

    • wind turbine – electrolyser interface
