Nowadays, the temperature of the world is rising due to the increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases, which cause from by human activities such as the combustion of the fossil fueL As we know, a lot of the plants, vehicles, machines, electrical and electronics appliances need the source of energy either from the fossil fuel or the other energy sources to operate. The global warming issue can be prevented if we provide the alternative source of energy to reduce the usage of the current source of energy. So, the aim of this project is to use the fuel cell concept to generate electricity from the hydrogen gas. This project will use the hydrogen gas produced from the hydrolysis of water process by using solar electrolyzer and to be converted to the electrical energy by using the fuel cell system. The electrical energy produced can be used direct power supply or as a backup power supply. The design of this project involves the green technology which is fuel cell, solar electrolyzer and ultra capacitor that convert the hydrogen gas to the electrical energy. Based on the fuel cell theory the current and voltage is created by using the special membrane that only allow the hydrogen ion to travel through it and the electron will travels through an electrical wire to produce the electrical energy. This project uses the Polymer Electrolyte Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) unit to convert the hydrogen gas to the electricity. There are two storage of the electrical energy which are storing the hydrogen gas and also the ultra capacitor. The ultra capacitor can be used as the secondary backup supply when the storage of hydrogen gas is empty. This project is the new innovation where it can produce the hydrogen gas itself and the gas produced can directly be used to generate electricity with having the backup supply from the ultra capacitor. The multifunction of this design make it can be applied to many applications especially for the vehicles, machine, electrical and electronic appliances that need continuous power supply like the air pump in the fish pond and solar hybrid car. This green innovation is the absolutely clean with no emission of the greenhouse gas and become one of the unique alternative energy.
