Theoretical and Experimental Study of Using Solar Energy to produce Hydrogen (Baghdad-Iraq)
Engineering and Technology Journal,
2010, Volume 28, Issue 19, Pages 953-967
AbstractA theoretical and experimental study was done about using solar energy to
produce Hydrogen; Hydrogen is one of the main options to use as unpolluted fuel
for environment and alternative energy instead of traditional fuels.
Theoretical study included mathematical model for Hydrogen-solar system to
predict, solar radiation, solar cells electrical power generation and the amount of
Hydrogen gas decomposed in an electrolyser at specific condition.
Experimental study included manufacturing and testing of Hydrogen-solar system
model, using electrolysis water solution method.
The system consists of a solar cell module and electrolyser which was tested
during day's hours of many random days, the analysis study of the experimental
results showed good agreement with the theoretical predictions of solar radiation,
the amount of generated Hydrogen and small deviation in the solar cell's electrical
power because we canceled the electrical resistance of the system.
The study showed the ability of using solar energy to produce Hydrogen and to
deduce the best conditions to increase the production and the efficiency of the
