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.
