Title
(EN) INTEGRATED SOLAR HYDROGEN PRODUCTION MODULE
(FR) MODULE DE PRODUCTION D'HYDROGÈNE SOLAIRE INTÉGRÉ
Abstract
(EN) An integrated solar hydrogen production module (10) comprise a plurality of PV cells (14) supported on a housing of the module (10). The module (10) has an energy storage system (16) which includes a rechargeable metal ion battery and a flow battery (60). The metal ion battery is charged by the PV cells (14). An electrolyser (18) for converting water to gaseous hydrogen and oxygen can be powered directly by the PV cells or by either of the rechargeable metal ion battery and a flow battery (60). The PV cells (14), the metal-ion battery, the flow battery membrane (60) and the electrolyser (18) are electrically coupled together and integrated into or carried by the module housing. Electrically powered and solar thermal heaters (36, 38) can be incorporated into or with the module to heat the water in the electrolysers. A pump (34) pressurises the water to facilitate the pressurisation of hydrogen and oxygen produced by the electrolysis.
(FR) L'invention concerne un module de production d'hydrogène solaire intégré (10) qui comprend une pluralité de cellules PV (14) supportées sur un boîtier du module (10). Le module (10) comprend un système de stockage d'énergie (16) qui comprend une batterie à métal-ion rechargeable et une batterie à flux (60). La batterie à métal-ion est chargée par les cellules PV (14). Un électrolyseur (18) destiné à convertir l'eau en hydrogène et oxygène gazeux peut être alimenté directement par les cellules PV ou par l'une ou l'autre de la batterie à métal-ion rechargeable et de la batterie à flux (60). Les cellules PV (14), la batterie à métal-ion, la membrane de la batterie à flux (60) et l'électrolyseur (18) sont électriquement couplés entre eux et intégrés dans le boîtier de module ou portés par celui-ci. Des dispositifs de chauffage électriques et thermosolaires (36, 38) peuvent être intégrés dans le module ou à celui-ci pour chauffer l'eau dans les électrolyseurs. Une pompe (34) met sous pression l'eau pour faciliter la mise sous pression de l'hydrogène et de l'oxygène produits par l'électrolyse.
