Compressibility factor according to the following table:

 Pressure (bar) 1 50 100 150 200 250 300 350 Compression factor 1 1.032 1.065 1.089 1.132 1.166 1.201 1.236

 Pressure (bar) 400 500 600 700 800 900 1000 Compression factor 1.272 1.344 1.416 1.489 1.56 1.632 1.702

Example of applying the compressibility factor: 1 50-litre bottle (conventional) at 200 bars of hydrogen at 0ºC contains 0.050 m* 200 / 1.132 = 8.834 Nm3

HYDROGEN FLOW – ELECTRIC POWER

 Kg/h de H2 ↔ Nm3/h de H2 gas ↔ Litres/h of H2 líquido1 ↔ Power2  (kW) 1 = 11.12 = 14.12 = 33.33 0.0899 = 1 = 1.270 = 3.00 0.0708 = 0.788 = 1 = 2.359 0.00833 = 0.0926 = 0.1177 = 0.278 0.0300 = 0.333 = 0.424 = 1

1 Hydrogen is liquid at atmospheric pressure of less than 20,39 K

2 Based on lower calorific value

Examples:

1.An electrolyser with 85% output that produces 10 Nm3 per hour consumes 35,29 kW (10·3.00/0.85) of power and 8.091 kg of water per hour (10·0.0899·(18/2)).

2.A 10kW fuel cell with total output of 45%  consumes 7.40 Nm3 per hour of H2(10·0.333/0,45) or 0.667 kg/hour of H2 (10·0.030/0.45), and produces 6.00 kg of water per hour (0.667·(18/2)).
