Emergency power system for a substation of Bayernwerk AG

Bavaria’s first PEM Fuel Cell based emergency power system (EPS) is installed in the Bachhausen substation (Neumartk district in Oberfalz) in order to cover the essential power demand of the substation in the event of a grid failure. Modl GmbH and Proton Motor Fuel Cell GmbH jointly designed, built and commissioned this system for Bayernwerk AG (formally E.ON Bavaria).

In case of a grid failure, the Fuel Cell system provides the necessary power for the technical equipment in the substation. In order to, for example, be able to carry our necessary switching actions for resupply every substation requires a power system independent from the grid capable of providing a bridging time of at least 10 hours. The substation in Bachhausen supplies the surrounding communities, telecom facilities of various network providers as well as pumping stations of the Main-Donau-Kanal.

The Fuel Cell emergency power system directly supplies the 240 VDC link of the substation with up to 5 kW of nominal electrical power. All consumers of the substation are supplied via this DC link. Proton Motor delivered its own PM Module S5 Fuel Cell system, along with a DC/DC convertor and equipment for data visualisation to Modl GmbH, who was responsible for producing the corresponding housing/ cabinet for the EPS system.The integration and safety concepts were jointly developed by both companies, and the Hydrogen storage equipment was implemented according to specifications provided by Proton Motor.

Seasonal Energy Storage at Klar Energie in Dernbach

A hydrogen based long term energy storage system was installed at Klar Energie in Dernbach. The central component of this energy solution is the PM Module S5 Fuel Cell system from Proton Motor which produces electrical energy from Hydrogen stored on site.

The Seasonal Energy Storage solution also consists of a battery based short-term energy storage system which can store energy produced from solar panels during the day, and re-used during the night, allowing the solar energy to be available round the clock. The battery is also used to balance the dynamic energy requirements of the business as well as acting as an interface or buffer between the load and the long term Fuel Cell based energy storage system.

Once the batteries are fully charged and the energy requirements of the user are cover, excess energy produced from the solar panels is converted into hydrogen for long term or “seasonal” storage. This Hydrogen can then be converted into electric energy via the Fuel Cell system as and when required. The thermal energy produced from the Fuel Cell can also be used for heating and climate control.

The complete energy solution includes an electrolyser, a Fuel Cell, a solar invertor as well as an energy management system. The Fuel Cell system PM Module S5 and the components necessary for the connection to the invertor were provided by Proton Motor. The individual components were then integrated into the complete solution and installed at Klar Energie by our partner and commissioned with support from Proton Motor. Service and maintenance are also provided by Proton Motor./p>

Re-electrification of Hydrogen stored in LOHC

The Smart Grid Solar (SGS) project is coordinated by the ZAE with AREVA GmbH as project partner. The project is referred to as ZAE SGS in the following text.

The ZAE SGS project tests various technologies for the storage of regenerative energy produced in everyday life. This includes a redox flow battery as alongside energy storage in the form of Hydrogen. The Hydrogen is produced via an electrolyser and subsequently chemically bonded with a “Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier”. This chemical bonding takes place a Hydrogenation unit and in order to be reused must be released from the LOHC by a Dehydrogenation unit. The Hydrogen released after this process is available in gaseous for the Fuel Cell system. This entire system, from the electrolyser to the Fuel Cell was delivered by Areva GmbH.

Proton Motor provided the PM Module S5 Fuel Cell, to Areva while the DC/AC convertor required to feed electrical energy into the grid was delivered by the Fraunhofer IISB, Erlangen. Proton Motor was responsible for integrating the Fuel Cell and DC/AC convertor into a standard 19-inch rack as well as providing support for the commissioning process.
