Trace 2512

At 51 Watts each, giving 408 Watts total. Actual production is less than rated by about 9 . At 20 Amps we have 338 Watts per hour flowing into our battery bank, an 18 decrease from rated production on an average sunny day. Actual performance then, is anywhere from 10 to 20 less than manufacturer's rating. With seven good hours of sunlight we can produce about 2,366 Watt-hours of energy in the summer. In the winter sunlight can be as little as three hours per day, or 1,014 Watt-hours. This...

Restructuring Distributed Generation

Central in the transition to a competitive retail electricity market (restructuring) is the separation or unbundling of generation and distribution. In a restructured market, the suppliers of electrons will be in competition with one another while the distribution (wires) companies will continue as regulated monopolies. The wires or distribution system will serve a common carrier function and users (generators) will pay a fee for the use of the distribution system. For there to be fair...

From the alloy, giving the hydrogen molecules access to the metal alloy surface. When hydrogen molecules H2 arrive at a clean MH surface they dissociate to produce two hydrogen atoms 2 H . The hydrogen atoms are so small they enter the crystal structure of the metal alloy and fill the voids between the metal atoms. The pressure and weight for charge discharge reactions are shown below. The curves shown are for one temperature the pressure curves will increase for higher temperatures and...

Hydralloy C Gfe Activation

Removal of Hydrogen from Hydralloy C This was done by opening the MH container's valve and feeding gas to a hydrogen cooking burner. As the gas was removed from the MH container, the container became cold enough to form ice on the outer surface from the moisture in the room air freezing . At lower hydrogen removal rates, ice did not form because the container gained heat from the ambient air fast enough to keep up with the reverse reaction 2MH heat 2M H2 . MH has been used in refrigeration...
