Russian Scientists Develop a of a Hybrid Wind-Hydrogen Energy Complex for the Arctic
Currently, the Arctic is being developed, and an uninterrupted power supply is required for the correct operation of all facilities in this territory. Scientists of the South Ural State University proposed using a wind power plant with hydrogen storage as a permanent source of energy. The idea is that energy is spent converting water to oxygen and hydrogen in windy weather. The hydrogen goes into the accumulator, and oxygen goes into the atmosphere. Electricity is generated during the conversion of oxygen to water when there is no wind.
The principle of operation of a wind turbine with hydrogen storage was described in the magazine "Hydrogen" (top 25%). There are no similar operating systems in the world yet. The conditions of tests carried out on analogs do not correspond to real climatic indicators in the Arctic. Therefore, D.Sc., Professor of the Institute of Engineering and Technology Evgeny Solomin, postgraduate students Abdalgbar Omer Jamal, Ibragim Akhmed Amer, Alexey Miroshnichenko, students Evgeny Gordievsky, Askar Kulganatov and Vitaliy Stanchauskas created a program which simulates the operation of the energy complex components to ensure the effectiveness of the approach. According to calculations, the equipment can be used up to minus 90 degrees Celsius. The certificate of state registration No. 2020615625 was obtained for the program of emulation of a hybrid wind-hydrogen power complex.
"The program for managing energy flows has elements of artificial intelligence, which indicates a high level of development and the prospects for creating systems of completely autonomous energy complexes controlled by neural networks. To check the model, we used a wind turbine on the roof of SUSU, since it is similar to the one installed in the Arctic. The program is a collaborative work of SUSU scientists, and the team is going to apply for grants and patent a number of new developments," Evgeny Solomin says.
