Jussara Barale, PhD student at the University of Turin, presented her research work on the HyCARE prototype during the 2022 edition of the European Hydrogen Energy Conference (EHEC2022) in Madrid. Barale’s presentation titled “Hydrogen – heat storage system based on metal hydride and phase change material”.
She showed the optimal working conditions for Phase Changing Materials (PCM) to properly manage Metal Hydrides (MH) in hydrogen absorption and desorption. The results from her experimental work provide insights on the best heat management strategy for promoting PCM contribution on H2 flow and TVP flow in hydrogen storage systems based on MH.
