December 1st, 2021

R&D Focus Areas:
Electrolysis, Technology integration process improvement

Lead Organisation:
University of Wollongong

Future Fuels CRC


Start date:
February 2020

Project summary description:
This project investigates:

  • Advanced power converter development to improve fuel cell system performance:
  • Improving the efficiency of the renewable energy-based electrolyser through power electronics optimisation; and
  • An advanced power flow controller for energy flow between the grid and electrolyser to produce hydrogen, and between fuel cell and grid to control the conversion of hydrogen to electricity.
