Abstract

Self-regulated hydrogen production at room temperature and atmosphere pressure is described in details.Basic idea of our approach is based on a precise auto-tuning of the oxidizing aqueous solution arrival ontohydrogenated silicon or aluminum nano-powders. The used self-regulation principle is completely passivee.g. neither electrical power sources, no regulating electronics are required. The system functioning wassimulated numerically and checked experimentally. The numerical simulation allowed definition of themain optimal parameters of the working system (pressure, capillary tube diameter, tank volumes) and anexperimental prototype based on the simulated results was built and used for hydrogen supplying to aportable PaxiTech® fuel cell.
