As part of the International Energy Agency Hydrogen ImplementingAgreement, an evaluation tool to assist in the design, operation, and optimization of hydrogen demonstration facilities is under joint development. Using commercially available software (ASPEN Plus), this tool is being designed to provide a comprehensive database or library of component models and an integrating platform through which these models may be linked. This tool, in conjunction with data collection, will be used to develop design guidelines for integrated demonstrations. Component models are included in the initial test platform, including several production, storage, transport, and end-use modules. Production models include biomass gasification and pyrolysis, natural gas steam reforming, and water electrolysis. Storage technologies consist of metal hydrides, chemical hydrides, liquefaction, and compressed gas. Transport models include high and low pressure pipelines, truck transport, and a refueling station. End-use technology models include several types of fuel cells and a gas turbine. It is anticipated that users of this tool will select production, storage, transport-distribution, and end-use models from the library of component models, or will use one or more of their own models in conjunction with the library models. Component models are then linked, using the integrating platform, into an overall hydrogen system. Situational analyses of two potential integrated hydrogen demonstrations were performed to illustrate the use of this tool. Configuration and selection of the subsystems are addressed in the context of the design of a hydrogen demonstration facility. 1 tab.
