    Water Electrolysis Power Generation holds promise for affordable RE

    March 29, 2023 - Sri Lanka Daily News


      Sri Lanka, March 29 -- Based in Sri Lanka, 'Green Lanka Sustainable Solutions Pvt Ltd', is the authorized marketing partner in Sri Lanka for the hydrogen power generator GH20 Project", which only uses water as input and manufactured in Japan. The company is also responsible for the marketing and after-sales service for the hydrogen power generator in Sri Lanka.

      Question: Tell us how the current economic crisis is affecting our power generation and how to overcome it?

      In the last few years, the country has been facing massive economic problem. Several attempts were made to cope with and escape from it. However those are people's problems, a lasting solution could not be provided for it. When failing to provide lasting solutions, the negative impact on livelihoods is very distressing.

      Especially the recent shock in the electricity tariff has shattered the trust of the people of Sri Lanka As we can observe no sustainable plan is implemented for the Electricity tariff reduction. A huge amount of foreign exchange is spent on fuel imports and most of it is used for electricity generation, huge economic loss is caused and our environment is also polluted. Many scientists believe that gases emitted by the power generating stations may also be to blamed

      Also, the current generation of electricity in the country is unable to meet the increasing demand for electricity. It is a very debilitating condition. In our country most of our power generation is based on fuel and coal Due to the fact that the production cost per unit of electricity is very dominant and if the electricity tariff reduction is not possible there is a high chance of another increase in electricity charges this year. There is also a high possibility of going into another age of blackouts very soon.

      Question: We are witnessing an increase in the use of renewable energy sources in recent times. Can we develop this to achieve a sustainable solution? What are the challenges involved?

      In order to reduce the impact of this situation, the government is using renewable energy sources We all know that various schemes have been implemented over the years to increase the renewable energy. The most popular is the roof mounted solar panel system. And solar panels on land The large-scale power generated by the plant is crucial to meet the country's increasing peak-hour electricity demand However its production during daytime and during hot season, is limited and cannot be considered as a permanent solution to our problem. In recent times, many projects are being implemented to generate electricity through wind turbines Full-time power generation also can be carried out.

      Electricity can be generated when there is suffcient wind. Uneven and seasonal generation are observed. Rooftop solar has become very popular over the past seven years. The Rooftop solar Project is currently facing massive backlash and the number of investors has decreased. Loan discontinuance, increase in the loan interest rate provided by banks, increase in cost of raw materials and electricity consumption are to be blamed. There is no suitable solution for this at present with the Govt.

      In the past, some ministers in the government requested to use electrical vehicles to reduce the usage of fossil fuel and save foreign exchange in Sri Lanka by introducing a restriction on fuel imports and increasing foreign exchange reserves. Although it is seen as a possible solution, it is not realistic. While using more electric vehicles the demand for electricity will increase as power generation is done with fuel in Sri Lanka, the reality is that fuel imports will increase.

      Question: Considering the above challenges, water as input to be marketed by your company how can a hydrogen powered generator solve Sri Lanka's electricity problem?

      This generator is made in Japan with next generation technology. Here water is used as an input and there is no other inputs used. It is important to note that no other external energy is used, Water is electrolyzed and hydrogen gas is generated. Batteries are installed in the alternator to start the process. But once the power generation started, part of it is used to charge the batteries.

      An important structure that has recently become known to many is the Fuel cell A machine that can convert chemical energy into electrical energy without any combustion. Hydrogen is a resource that can efficiently convert energy and provide it as input to a Fuel cell. It reacts with oxygen in the cell to generate electricity.

      Direct electricity generated here amplified by amplification technology and converted into alternating current by an inverter.

      Question: Is the Fuel Cell technology you mentioned being used elsewhere?

      Last year popular car manufacturing company Toyota introduced fuel cell to the market. It can run by filling the car fuel tank with hydrogen gas. One kilogram of gas can travel 81 miles. If introduced in Sri Lanka, The filling stations should be converted into hydrogen gas filling stations.

      Question: You mentioned that electrolysis requires electrical input through battery. You also mentioned that the initial demand is supplied and then the fuel cell produces the electricity. Normally the input power is greater than the output power. So how is power generated? Is it possible?

      Yes, possible. Some catalysis are used to increase the reaction rate of the Hydrogen production which reduces electricity consumption, fuel cell generated power are amplified by using the electronic circuit. It is further amplified by the G motor. This is where the high voltage technology of the alternator is utilized. Your question is very valid. Firstly catalysts for gas production are very low as appropriate voltage differential is applied Electrical input is provided. Also, the electricity produced by the fuel cell is fed through G-motor , the input power is converted 10 times. However the manufacturer guarantees a 5x power boost.

      Question: Tell us about the technology behind G- Motor?

      The most advanced technology of this generator is the G-Motor. Due to the contract we cannot share all the details related to it. Some things necessary Can be informed. However, I would like to mention only a few basic points. Very strong magnets are used here. Due to the magnetic force created by these, Motors are rotated. Through the electromagnetic the electric power is multiplied.

      Question: If this project is introduced in Sri Lanka, will it solve the current electricity problem? Or Can a sustainable solution be achieved?

      Yes. As mentioned earlier, this generator can operated by pure water input as well as our manufacturing facilities capable of producing and distributing generators from 2 KW to 50 MW. They The capacity of Nuraicholai power station is 900 mega Watt. Recyclable technology uses water to produce large amounts of electricity Less water is needed and our water resources are protected. This can reduce the cost of production massively. Switching cost and return on investment is under consideration, the cost of electricity can be reduced by 40-60%.

      Question: What are the next steps after the generator is installed?

      In fact, the generator is self-powered 24 hours a day. To provide continuous water supply No monitoring is required if the water supply system is installed properly. The supplied water is in the generator will be purified and delivered through the purification machine set up. Technology of this generator and all operations are continuously monitored by the technical center in Japan.

      Question: How much water would be needed to generate and supply 50 KW of electricity for one hour?

      500 ml of water is enough to supply 50 KW of electricity for 1 hour. That is 12 litters per day Water is sufficient, surprising but true. For the 200 Kw power generator 1400L is required to fill in the water tank that is located inside the generator.

      Question: Are there any emissions that can affect the environment?

      Only oxygen gas is released by eletrolysis in this generator. 0.02 ppm of Oxygen and 0.1 ppm of ozone are released and these are harmless gases.

      Question: How many years can the alternator be used continuously? How will electricity demand vary? How are the after sales services?

      Generally 1 year warranty is provided and if required, 25 years warranty can be provided. However it can be used for more than 25 years but the annual depreciation will be 0.5% this generator is able to provide consistent power continuously and thus we recommend it for balanced demand.

      In the event that the Ceylon Electricity Board agrees to purchase additional electricity, the excess electricity can be supplied to National Grid and earn income. After sales the company will provide annual sales service.

      Generally service is provided after 365 days. There is no any wear and tear and no special maintenance is needed as the batteries are checked, cleaned and replaced when necessary.
