The Effects of Voltage Flow and pH Value in Alkaline Electrolyser System to Performance
The aim of this paper is to investigate the effects of voltage flow (V) in the alkaline electrolyser system and the pH value (pH) of the electrolyte used in the electrolyser. The output measurement of both investigated factors in in the flow rate of the hydrogen gas produced by the system per minute (ml/min). The voltage flow was altered in the system by altering the voltage supply from the workbench power supply ranging from 11V to 14V. The pH value of the electrolyte solution in the electrolyser was altered by the addition of Potassium Hydroxide (KOH) in the distilled water. The pH value samples of the tested solution ranging from 13.0 to 14.0 pH value due to the limitation of the electrolyser used in this experiment. The results found that, the hydrogen gas produced per minute increases with voltage flow in the system. The flow rate of the hydrogen gas produced however only increases when the solution’s pH value reaches at 14 pH level and unreactive below the value.
