Optimization Of Hydrogen Filling Station
MetadataShow full item record
After experiencing the price hikes in the fuel and electricity, renewable energy is considered as one of the most attractive alternatives for future utility industry. Also, Hydrogen via renewable energy is of interest due to the environmental concern when compared with traditional fossil fuels. The Energy Bill of 2005 has included an authorization of $3.7 billion for hydrogen and fuel cell research and development. Further, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) are currently in the pre-production stage of development and the infrastructure needs to support them. Hence to overcome issues like price hike, exhaustion of crude oil and to gain appreciation for research, this thesis proposes the development of an intelligent hydrogen filing station to monitor, control, and protect the price hike by using renewable energy & T-O-U electricity tariff as the generation facilities. The proposed filling station will provide hydrogen for FCVs and act as a smart coordinator between the renewable energy and the utility supply.
