Using Electrolyzer as an Electrical Load

I would like to design a renewable energy system (solar and wind with battery storage) that powers an electrolyzer for Hydrogen generation. Currently, my Electrolyzer only operates when either solar or wind is supplying power but is not producing Hydrogen when it could be utilising the battery discharge. How can I treat the electrolyzer as a load that takes advantage of the battery during periods of no renewable power?

Hello Nic,

 

Currently, the electrolyzer has been designed to be served only by the excess electricity in the system. So it cannot be served by the battery discharge.

 

Best,
