Metal Hydride Hydrogen Compression Systems–Materials, Applications and Numerical Analysis

Evangelos Gkanas, Martin Khzouz

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    In this chapter, an analysis of the usage of hydrogen storage technologies for the
    design and construction of effective thermally driven hydrogen compressors is
    presented. A discussion on the available technologies for compressing hydrogen is
    presented; followed by an analysis of the combination of metal hydrides to design
    a metal hydride hydrogen compression (MHHC) system. The physicochemical
    and thermodynamic aspects of the metal hydride formation is introduced and the
    most suitable materials for compression processes are considered and analyzed.
    The necessity for the development of an accurate numerical analysis to describe a
    multistage MHHC system is explained, analyzed and discussed.
