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.

Quality is when your QMB goes “High-Five-S” with you

We know where quality must ultimately be demonstrated and proven: In the product, in the customer’s application. But where does quality begin? On the one hand in technical development and on the other hand in the organization of workplaces in production. Employees who keep their workstations tidy maintain an overview, have access to the right tools at all times and can work on the product efficiently and with quality assurance.

Information visit to TRAMAG by the VDI District Association of Bavaria North-East

On the afternoon of St Nicholas’ Day, the TRAMAG plant in Fürth hosted an information event for members of the Association of German Engineers (VDI) from the Bavarian North-East District Association. Due to the regional proximity and also taking TRAMAG’s 100th anniversary as an occasion, we received a request from the Nuremberg VDI local group to visit our plant, which we were very happy to fulfil.

“Quality is when the Customer comes back and not the Product”

The most technically innovative or economically attractive product in an application is worth nothing if the quality is not right. Not only would the failure of the product itself have to be lamented, but possibly also further damage to the entire application.
