Temporal Power Analysis of Solar-Hydrogen Based Fuel Cell System
Currently, fossil fuels as main energy source to fulfil world’s energy demand is depleting fast. Their waste products are also causing global environment problems. One of the solutions is to replace the existing fossil fuel energy system by the non- fossil fuel energy system. The relative costs and CO2 emission reduction benefits of advanced non fossil fuel electricity generation. Utilization of photovoltaic (PV) generated electricity in power system detached from public grid usually requires both short term storage for compensation of day/night cycles as well as long term storage for smoothing the seasonal energy harvest distinction. This paper presents a model of small electricity energy generation based on solar- hydrogen fuel which resolves the long term storage problems of energy. In a solarhydrogen energy system, some photovoltaic array would provide current electricity demand while others would be used to produce hydrogen for storage and later use in fuel cells to generate electricity. The paper also presents the design of the system that is used between solar -hydrogen fuel system to generate non-stop electricity i.e., independent on weather climate or sun.
