The purity of hydrogen used within electric power generators has a direct affect on cooling efficiency, windage friction losses, generating capacity and generator longevity. Hydrogen?s high thermal conductivity is the primary reason it is used as the cooling media in a generator instead of air. Hydrogen has a thermal conductivity of nearly seven times that of air, and its ability to transfer heat through forced convection is about 50% better than air. Maintaining hydrogen?s high thermal conductivity through purity monitoring and continuous improvement is important to the overall operation of hydrogen cooled electric generators. Continuous hydrogen replenishment has been proven to be an effective technique in maintaining purity within hydrogen cooled electric generators.

Our Principals – Proton OnSite, USA (World Leaders in Safe and Reliable PEM Water Electrolysis based Hydrogen Generation Plants) have published a case study that looks at the effects of purity, pressure and dew point of Hydrogen in the Power Industry.
