Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2004016982
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
An onboard hydrogen storage unit with heat transfer system for a hydrogen powered vehicle. The system includes a hydrogen storage vessel (1) containing a hydrogen storage alloy configured to receive a stream of hydrogen through a hydrogen inlet (2) and to provide hydrogen for use in powering a vehicle. During refueling of the vehicle, a cooling/heating loop (4, 8) is used to remove the heat of hydride formation from the hydrogen storage alloy whereas during operation of the vehicle the heating/cooling loop (4, 8) is used to supply heat to the hydrogen storage alloy to aid in hydrogen desorption.
