This work presents a method to design an optimised system that combines electrolysers and solar photovoltaic panels for sustainable hydrogen production. Given the daily and seasonal variations of the electricity output vs. a stable hydrogen demand, power exchange to/from the electric grid and hydrogen storage systems are considered. The aim is to determine the optimal size of the PV field, the electrolyser, and the storage, for a given hydrogen demand, by minimising the cost of the hydrogen produced.

Abstract

This work presents a method to design an optimised system that combines electrolysers and solar photovoltaic panels for sustainable hydrogen production. Given the daily and seasonal variations of the electricity output vs. a stable hydrogen demand, power exchange to/from the electric grid and hydrogen storage systems are considered. The aim is to determine the optimal size of the PV field, the electrolyser, and the storage, for a given hydrogen demand, by minimising the cost of the hydrogen produced.
