Modeling Studies of Fixed-Bed Metal-Hydride Storage Systems
Modeling studies are of a practical importance in understanding and characterizing the behavior of hydride beds now being developed for storing and supplying hydrogen fuel in power plant and automotive applications. A convection bed model, in which heat is transferred to or from the bed by a flowing stream of hydrogen in direct contact with the particles, and a conduction model in which heat is transferred through a containment wall, were developed. FeTiH2 and catalyzed MgH2 were evaluated using the model.
