The Tutorial HyRunner Kit by H-TEC helps you explore the innovative world of hydrogen powered vehicle / car models. The kit is equipped with a Reversible PEM Fuel Cell to combine hydrogen and oxygen and produce electrical energy to power the motor. The hydrogen is supplied from a solar hydrogen gas station where the reversible fuel cell is run in electrolysis mode (in combination with the Solar Panel and De-ionized water) and splits water into hydrogen and oxygen. The gases are than stored for use in the storage cylinders where they are later transferred to the car and supplied back in to the reversible fuel cell so it can be ran in fuel cell mode to power the car!
(1) Electrolyzer Mode - Uses external voltage to produce Hydrogen and Oxygen
(2) H2/O2 Fuel Cell Mode - Uses pure Hydrogen and Oxygen to produce electricity
(3) H2/Air Fuel Cell Mode - Uses pure Hydrogen and Atmospheric Oxygen (also known as air) to produce electricity
The Reversible Fuel Cell (RFC) can work in either electrolysis or fuel cell mode. As an electrolyser, it uses an external voltage to break down water into hydrogen and oxygen. As a fuel cell, it produces electricity by using hydrogen and oxygen gas (or atmospheric oxygen, also known as air).
