An Energy Autonomous House Equipped with a Solar PV Hydrogen Conversion System


The use of RES in buildings is difficult for their random nature; therefore the plants using photovoltaic solar collectors must be connected to a power supply or interconnected with Energy accumulators if the building is isolated. The conversion of electricity into hydrogen technology is best suited to solve the problem and allows you to transfer the solar energy captured from day to night, from summer to winter. This paper presents the feasibility study for a house powered by PV cogeneration solar collectors that reverse the electricity on the control unit that you command by a PC to power the household, using a heat pump, an electrolytic cell for the production of hydrogen to accumulate; control units sorting to the utilities the electricity produced by the fuel cell. The following are presented: The Energy analysis of the building, the plant design, economic analysis.
