Experimental Research of Hydrogenous Fuel Production from Biogas for Usage in Fuel Cells of Autonomous Power Supply Systems
Possibility of creation of systems of power supply for autonomous consumers based on the new hydrogen technologies using local waste as an energy resource is shown. Amount of consumed gas for production 1 Cl of electricity at supply of hydrogen obtained by electrolysis and hydrogen-containing mixture with the residual content of methane at an identical oxidizer and pressure of fuel supply are commensurable. The possibility of effective operation of a fuel cell module on hydrogen-containing fuel (received from biogas) with the residual content of methane and the possibility of reach modes of effective use of fuel were confirmed. The consumption mixture with residual methane (2% vol.) is comparable (within 5%) with the required amount of hydrogen produced by electrolysis to generate the identical power at a predetermined time interval. The use of relatively cheap hydrogen-fuel derived from biogas from local secondary renewable resources can contribute to the creation of autonomous economical systems of power supply.
