Abstract

Processes to produce hydrogen from solar photovoltaic powered water electrolysis using solid polymer electrolysis are reported. An alternative control of maximum power point tracking method based on analysis of PV panel’s surface Temperature for the PV-SPE system was designed and implemented. From this analysis an optimal voltage of PV can be obtained and was realized as a reference voltage of Dc-DC converter. By maintenance the output voltage of PV using the reference voltage control, the output PV can be optimized at its MPP operation. The MPPT performance and hydrogen production performance of this method have been evaluated and discussed based on the results of the experiment.
