Abstract
Power electronics enable the interconnection between renewable energy and electrolytic hydrogen production. At ambient conditions, the volumetric energy density of hydrogen is low, and therefore pressurisation is required. This paper studies the effect of the hydrogen outlet pressure from PEM electrolysers on the specific energy consumption of water electrolyser systems.
