Performa PEM Elektrolizer dengan Hotpress

Alan Pradana Bakti, Luh Gede Gandis, Ramli Sitanggang


Energy becomes an important component for human survival because almost all activities of human life are highly dependent on the availability of sufficient energy. PEM electrolizer is an alternative to produce hydrogen as a renewable energy source. In this study aims to improve the performance of PEM electrolizer which has been operating for 5750 hours, with the MEA washing method using hot water and then conditioned using a hotpress device with a certain pressure and temperature. The conclusion is that the performance of PEM electrolizer will tend to increase with increasing hotpress pressure and will tend to decrease with increasing hotpress temperature.
