Design and Optimization of Advanced Materials and Processes for Efficient Hydrogen storage Academic Article uri icon


  • This work presents a systematic approach for the optimal design and optimization of metal hydride materials and processes for efficiency hydrogen storage. Techniques for the synthesis and characterization of novel metal hydride materials are presented in a view of designing materials to enhance storage efficiency. A small-scale metal hydride tank has been designed in order to investigate its capacity and efficiency. Then, a dynamic model that have developed previously by the authors provides the basis for investigating systematic optimization and on-line control studies. Optimization results indicate that significant improvement on the storage time can be achieved under tight design and operating constraints. 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
