First courses for Fuel Cells and Hydrogen applications (KnowHy) – specialisation course: Hydrogen Production and Handling
Interested participants could start the specialisation course: Hydrogen Production and Handling
Wide spectrum to produce and storage hydrogen with an intrinsic security
Hydrogen as itself is not present in the environment thus; several processes need to be performed before using this fuel in any application. In this course, the part of the technology related to the production, purification and storage of hydrogen is studied in detail. Specifically, the points that are going to be described are:
Hydrogen production. With an emphasis on main technologies, like reformation and electrolysis and other important new processes.
Hydrogen purification. Listing the existent systems used and its applications for each case.
Hydrogen storage. Analysing different possibilities to storage hydrogen and distribute it to the final users.
Hydrogen handling. Showing the risks, detection and regulations, codes and standards for hydrogen security in its production, storage and use.
After finishing this course, the student will be able:
- To identify each technology of production, how it works, its pros and cons.
- To choose better purification processes and the requirements that they need and can be given.
- To select the best option for hydrogen distribution.
- To detect any risk or incident related to the hydrogen technology.
The qualification obtained is “Certificate of Knowledge in Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology for Technicians: Hydrogen production & handling”.
- Each course is divided into two modules: the core module. And after the compilation the core module, the student starts to follow the specialisation module.
- The course will require approximately 100 hours of student effort, of which there will be 40 hours dedicated to the core module and 60 hours to a specialisation module.
- For the online part of the courses, the indicated date is the starting date of the course.
- For the practical part of the course, (12/5/2017) the indicated date is the fixed date for the one-day practical session, which is taking place in-person.
- The online course should be completed before the practical session
