Title
(EN) NICKEL ALLOYS FOR HYDROGEN STORAGE AND THE GENERATION OF ENERGY THEREFROM
(FR) ALLIAGES AU NICKEL POUR LE STOCKAGE D'HYDROGÈNE ET LA GÉNÉRATION D'ÉNERGIE À PARTIR DE CELUI-CI
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus for the generation of thermal energy comprises a reactor vessel containing a volume of pressurized hydrogen; a hydrogen-storing nickel alloy structure in the reactor vessel and configured to have an electric potential applied across it and to be heated to at least about 100 C; and a heat exchange conduit configured to carry a heat exchange medium past the nickel alloy structure so as to allow thermal energy generated in the nickel alloy structure to be transferred to the heat exchange medium. The hydrogen-storing nickel alloy structure comprises a nickel alloy skeletal catalyst mixed with an oxide. The applied electric potential, and the increase in the gas pressure and temperature of the hydrogen from the applied heat, create a reaction between hydrogen nuclei and nickel nuclei in the nickel alloy structure whereby thermal energy is generated by the emission of phonons from the nickel alloy structure.

L'invention concerne un appareil de génération d'énergie thermique qui comprend une cuve de réacteur comprenant un volume d'hydrogène sous pression ; une structure d'alliage au nickel stockant l'hydrogène, dans la cuve de réacteur et conçu pour avoir un potentiel électrique appliqué au travers de celle-ci et pour être chauffée à au moins environ 100°C ; et un conduit d'échange de chaleur conçu pour transporter un milieu d'échange de chaleur devant la structure d'alliage au nickel de façon à permettre à l'énergie thermique générée dans la structure d'alliage au nickel d'être transférée au milieu d'échange de chaleur. La structure d'alliage au nickel stockant l'hydrogène comprend un catalyseur squelettique d'alliage au nickel mélangé avec un oxyde. Le potentiel électrique appliqué et l'augmentation de la pression de gaz et de la température de l'hydrogène à partir de la chaleur appliquée, crée une réaction entre les noyaux d'hydrogène et les noyaux de nickel dans la structure d'alliage au nickel, ce par quoi l'énergie thermique est générée par l'émission de phonons à partir de la structure d'alliage au nickel.
