Another aspect of Hydrogen that increasing number of power plant operators are getting interested in is the effect of purity and dew point of Hydrogen on the operation of their power generators.
A number of prospective customers visited our booth at this show to learn about how online supply of Hydrogen with a Proton OnSite Hydrogen generator can rid them of their current Hydrogen supply woes. Also on display was our StableFlow® product which allows power plants to produce more saleable power simply by improving the purity and dew point in their power generator.
Hydrogen Generators in the Power Sector
Hydrogen is used to cool the windings of large power plant generators because of hydrogen’s high heat capacity and low density. Power plants utilising hydrogen-cooled generators must maintain optimal hydrogen purity and pressure in the generator casing for efficiency, safety, and equipment reliability. Continuous addition of ultra-pure hydrogen from a HOGEN® hydrogen generation system to make up for hydrogen seal losses can optimise hydrogen purity and pressure for best operating performance and uptime.
There are two ways to fill your hydrogen demand: have it delivered in cylinders or tube trailers, or make it onsite with a hydrogen generator. Periodic addition of hydrogen gas from storage to your generator casing means your generator runs de optimized most of the time, and moisture in the hydrogen supplied to the generator casings can lead to the formation of cracks in the generator retaining rings, and possible generator failure.
