Industries & Applications: Hydrogen Production for a “green” Energy Source

TRAMAG DC Smoothing Reactors in use for the DC Supply of an Electrolysis Plant for the Production of Hydrogen  

The electrolysis process for the production of hydrogen, from the decom-position of water into its molecular components hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O), requires the use of large amounts of electrical power. In particular, “green” hydrogen, produced with regenerative electricity generators, is seen as a hopeful energy source in the exit scenario from fossil fuels sources. Instead of oil and gas, hydrogen-powered fuel cells are to generate electricity and heat for end consumers, both private and commercial, for mobility or for industrial processes.

The operation of the electrolysis process within a so-called electrolyser plant requires a regulated direct current supply. A rectifier system is used to convert the alternating current drawn from the power supply network into direct current. However, the rectified voltage is highly pulsating, which is undesirable for the components used in control and drives technology.

TRAMAG: We are the Enablers

The use of a TRAMAG DC Smoothing Choke at the rectifier output ensures a smoothed current form, i.e. a reduction of the AC residual ripple, in order to avoid damage to the subsequently installed electrical components and to ensure a stable, safe electrolysis process.

High efficiency and high availability of the electrolyser plants for hydrogen production on a large industrial scale are prerequisites for ensuring that investment and operating costs pay off, also with the use of TRAMAG winding goods technology as part of the optimum electrical equipment, and thus enable economic operation.

For years, customers all over the world have been able to trust in our TRAMAG solutions competence in transformers, reactors and filters, both in reliable use for the production of regenerative energy with wind power and photovoltaic plants and for the generation of “green” energy sources such as hydrogen. An important contribution to a CO2-reduced and at the same time strengthened energy industry for the stable supply of “green” electricity.

Participation in the B2Run event on 25. July 2023 in Nuremberg

The weather was kind to the 14,000 runners, who were in the best of moods: Right at the start of this year’s B2Run event around Nuremberg’s Max Morlock Stadium, the rain took a long break. With a pleasant 22º C and a light breeze, a few rays of sunshine even fell on the colorful starting field of employees from many, many companies based in the Franconian region.

From the Fürth Solar Hill to the own Solar Roof

Eight years after saving the commissioning of the “Fürth Solarberg” with TRAMAG transformers, the Ammon family decided to install their own photovoltaic (PV) system on the roof of TRAMAG’s own company building. The 184kW peak output is sufficient to supply around 55 households with electricity, as reported in December 2011 by the Fürther Nachrichten on the occasion of the commissioning of the TRAMAG PV system, which was also attended by the Mayor of Fürth, who also climbed onto TRAMAG’s roof.
