Samenvatting:
As part of the International Energy Agency (IEA) Hydrogen ImplementingAgreement, an evaluation tool to assist in the design, operation and optimization of hydrogen demonstration facilities is under development. Using commercially available flowsheet simulation software as the integrating platform, this tool is designed to provide system developers with a comprehensive database or library of component models and an integrating platform through which these models may be linked. By combining several energy system components a conceptual design of an integrated hydrogen energy system can be made. As a part of the tool and connected to the library are design guidelines which can help finding the optimal configuration in the design process. The component categories considered include: production, storage, transport, distribution and end use of hydrogen. This paper discusses the development of guidelines which will aid the user of the tool in the optimization and selection of hydrogen systems. A strict design methodology has been instituted to ensure an unambiguous and optimal use of the design guidelines. For this purpose 5 design steps and 4 data categories have been defined. The design guidelines consist of information which has been collected and is formatted according to the data structure defined by the design methodology and indications on how the data can be used in the subsequent design steps. Using the guidelines, the experience acquired in existing and future integrated systems is made accessible, e.g. for use in modelling the hydrogen technology components in ASPEN. Most importantly, the design guidelines should help the user combine the components into a model of an integrated system. 4 refs.
