A Study on the Joule-Thomson Effect of During Filling Hydrogen in High Pressure Tank


With the development of the hydrogen fuel cell automobile industry, higher requirements are put forward for the construction of hydrogen energy infrastructure, the matching of parameters and the control strategy of hydrogen filling rate in the hydrogenation process of hydrogenation station. Fuel for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles comes from hydrogen refueling stations. At present, the technological difficulty of hydrogenation is mainly reflected in the balanced treatment of reducing the temperature rise of hydrogen and shortening the filling time during the fast filling process. The Joule-Thomson (JT) effect occurs when high-pressure hydrogen gas passes through the valve assembly, which may lead to an increase in hydrogen temperature. The JT effect is generally reflected by the JT coefficient. According to the high pressure hydrogen in the pressure reducing valve, the corresponding JT coefficients were calculated by using the VDW equation, RK equation, SRK equation and PR equation, and the expression of JT effect temperature rise was deduced, which revealed the hydrogen temperature variation law in the process of reducing pressure. Make clear the relationship between charging parameters and temperature rise in the process of decompression; the flow and thermal characteristics of hydrogen in the process of decompression are revealed. This study provides basic support for experts to achieve throttling optimization of related pressure control system in hydrogen industry
