Advanced Power Controls for Hydrogen Hybrid Microgrids (HHM) with Thermal Storage


Keywords: , , , ,

The Hydrogen Hybrid Microgrid (HHM) is a resilient and scalable power generating plant comprised of a (NG) turbine, a compressor, a NG reformer, a Solid Oxide Electrolizer Cell (SOEC) and a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) that runs off of hydrogen, which the HHM produces on-site with carbon-based fuel stock, most frequently natural gas. The HHMs are designed for distribution utilities, military and commercial use. The advanced power controls being worked on by the RPW and NETL team are called the “Precision Power Platform” (PPP) and they involve integrating (and monitoring) dynamic, supervisory and cybersecurity functions; these controls have multiple capabilities that will enable the national grid to become more resilient, more distributed in nature and cleaner.
