Power Generation from Hydrogen Fuel (Derived from Water by Electrolysis)

Previous Next

This is an alternative fuel technology to generate power using hydrogen fuel (HHO gas) that is derived from water by electrolysis. Hydrogen is the clean fuel of the future. It is the most abundant element in the universe that also contains more energy than most hydrocarbon fuels and is generated from water, which too, is available in abundance on our planet.

The splitting of water into hydrogen and oxygen through electrolysis consumes a significant amount of electrical power, and the resulting hydrogen produced creates a power deficit. This system is designed to produce 35% more power to feed back into the electrolytic cell for production of HHO, thereby compensating for the deficit. This additional 35% is obtained by an increased installed capacity of the generator engine & alternator and a specialized controlled feedback design that combines a percentage of the hydrogen power generated and power from solar, wave and wind power generators to aid the electrolytic cell in producing HHO gas.

When power from renewable resources sufficiently feeds the electrolytic cell, the entire 135% of generated energy can be distributed. In case of shortage in renewable power for electrolysis, an equivalent reduction in energy shall be drained from the generator and thereby reduce useable power.

The resulting HHO gas produced by this technology can be used as a direct substitute for petroleum or diesel fueled internal combustion engines, boilers, furnaces etc. without major design changes. As the by-product of burning hydrogen forms water, it is non-toxic which means no air pollution, no ozone depletion and it has a net zero carbon footprint. Hydrogen fuel, when produced by sustainable sources of energy like solar, wave or wind power, is a renewable fuel. There is no existing power generation system which can be compared to this in terms of its low cost, zero pollution creation, and sustainability.

The specialty of this technology lies in the efficient operation of the hydrogen cell. The proprietary black box that produces the HHO gas is a combination of 4 different technologies - a) the anodes and cathodes of the cell are made of unique materials, b) to activate production, special additives are added to water, c) the power supply is through a special electronic unit and d) the cell is maintained in a specific magnetic environment. The combination of these technologies enhances the efficiency of breaking the covalent bonds of hydrogen. It is important to note that there is a lot of room for further development by increasing efficiency through physical design changes of the cell.

Though the cell mentioned in this technology is a sophisticated unpublished technology, it can be manufactured using non-toxic materials in a simple manufacturing set up. This technology can replace all existing fossil fuels as a direct substitute by incorporating the hydrogen cell with its peripheral system as a fuel producing in-situ setup along with its fuel supplying components. The question of marketability does not arise as this alternate fuel is the need of the hour.
