Techno-Economic Analysis of a Solar-Powered Green Hydrogen Production System
Learn how to model a solar-powered DC microgrid with a green hydrogen production system, run simulations, and analyze the economic performance of the system at 242 different locations with MATLAB®, Simulink®, and Simscape™.
Watch how you can:
- Perform system analysis on a physical model of a localized DC microgrid with a battery-based energy storage system, electrolyzer loads, and a solar array as the energy generation unit.
- Make modifications at a component level, such as battery sizing and solar cell parameters, and try out different scenarios by running multiple simulations.
- Vary the simulation time scale ranging from days to years.
- Obtain key operational metrics such as the amount of power generated, consumed, and stored; the amount of water consumed; and the amount of hydrogen generated.
- Import real-world solar irradiance data (9760 TMY3 from NREL) with 242 locations in the data set and electricity price data to analyze grid cost and solar resources at each location.
- Speed up simulations for the techno-economic analysis by using quasi-steady state simulations, reduced-order modeling, and parallel simulations.
- Identify locations with the highest and lowest grid costs as well as the highest and lowest solar resources.
