Cycle life reported to be 10,000 to 500,000 cycles 2 cycles per day for 20 years is 15,000 cycles Analysis Approach (WindSTORM) Analysis is needed to answer What is the best approach to combine hydrogen systems with wind? Simulate calendar year 2002 California ISO load data Windfarm data from Lake Benton, MN Requirement: Power must balance hourly Seek to reduce necessary traditional generation capacity (windpower capacity credit) Determine optimal control methodology Calculate system size and cost Analysis parameter assumptions Wind has 50% capacity credit 100 MW wind farm reduces peak requirements on traditional generation by 50 MW Equivalent to 50 MW firm power from 100 MW windfarm

Wind has 12% energy penetration Wind has 20% capacity penetration No net hydrogen production Battery charge efficiency 95% Battery discharge efficiency 90% Electrolyzer efficiency 75% Fuel cell efficiency 50% Cost assumptions Cost of Wind: $1,000/kW Cost of battery: $70/kWh Cost of electrolyzer: $600/kW (2010) Cost of fuel cell: $600/kW (2010) Cost of H2 storage (in-tower): $3/kWh ($100/kg) FCR: 11.58% O&M: fixed at $0.008/kWh Example of system performance "Battery and H2" system load balanace 600,000

Battery and H2 system with hydrogen production Electricity Hydrogen Capacity H2 only system with hydrogen production only - no electricity COE COE ($/kWh) Revenue (M$/year) 0.07 Analysis of hydrogen production scenarios Battery and H2 system with hydrogen production 5% of windfarm output turned into hydrogen

Enough to support about 2,250 vehicles 10.7% of windfarm revenue from hydrogen 5.8% of windfarm revenue from capacity credit Cost of H2 production: $0.072/kWh ($2.40/kg) Cost of H2 production is low because electrolyzer capacity factor is greater than 58%. Cost drops to $0.062/kWh ($2.06/kg) if electrolyzer cost drops to $300/kW H2 only system no electricity Cost of H2 production: $0.081/kWh ($2.70/kg) Cost of H2 production is higher because of lower electrolyzer capacity factor (38%) Conclusions It is possible to firm up wind power for a roughly 10% increase in COE. Using batteries is cost effective Using hydrogen systems alone is not cost effective because the closed-cycle efficiency is too low Hydrogen production can be simultaneously accomplished and is cost effective Hydrogen production alone Is less cost effective Control strategy and proper system sizing are very important With further investigation, it may be possible to do much better
