Hydrogen system operation

Last Updated: Jul 25, 2016 02:52PM MDT

For the electrolyzer to operate, there must be some demand for the hydrogen it produces.  That requires an electric load, but also a hydrogen-fueled generator.  For example, if the system contained a fuel cell fueled by stored hydrogen (and did not contain a battery) the fuel cell would operate and consume hydrogen whenever the electric load exceeded the renewable power output.  The electrolyzer would operate and produce hydrogen whenever the renewable power output exceeded the load.
