Abstract

World today is facing a very huge environment problems which is global warming that effect to the green house. One of the major factors that lead to this kind of situation is thinning ozone layer causes by Carbon Monoxide (CO) produced by vehicles around the globe. Nowadays, we can say that most vehicles powered by fossil fuel as a source of energy. Not only vehicles, some of machines also rely on fossil fuel as an energy source and from what we know about this energy sources outrun day by day and their effect is not environment friendly. As an effort to save the world, alternative energy sources has already been introduced and become one of important power sources today. Renewable energy such as solar, wind, wave, hydro and etc is the practical ways in order to create new energy without effecting the environment. Besides that, the alternative energy sources also introducing the green technology. By using the idea, the purpose of this project is to introduce and to produce and electrical energy by using Hydrogen gas. This project will demonstrate on how Hydrogen gas can be converted to produce electricity by using fuel cell technology and electricity produced by that particular process can be a direct supplier or also as a backup power supply. This project can be categorized as a green technology because there is no product effect when producing electricity. By referring the fuel cell theory, voltage and current produced by interaction at the special cell membrane which is Polymer Electrolyte Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) that involving Hydrogen ion travel through the cell membrane and electron will flow on the electrical rod to produce electricity. Other than that, the solar panel also connected together in parallel in order to multiply the input power produce. The major problem of harvesting technology is the electrical output voltage and current is small in value. This problem will cause a difficulty to trigger any loads connected with any renewable source. Therefore, to overcome the problem this research will present a voltage and current booster that improvise the output of harvesting technology. The expected voltage and current output for this project is use to operate electrical and electronics devices such as DC motor, radio and etc.
