Dimensionning and Simulation of a Pilot Plant for Solar Hydrogen Production
Keywords: Hydrogen, Solar, Hydrogen Production, Electrolysis, Photovoltaic Panel, Simulation Abstract. Hydrogen is regarded as the potential bearer of energy of the future. Solar hydrogen is the hydrogen produced using renewable energy, particularly solar energy [8,3]. The availability of water and hours of sunshine make Algeria a place of choice for solar hydrogen production. In this work, solar hydrogen production by electrolysis of water is considered. The required energy for water dissociation is supplied by a photovoltaic system. A design and operation study of a photovoltaic system has been done for three different regions in Algeria. The production potential is highly significant particularly in the south parts of this country.
