3 Syrian engineering students at Damascus University have developed a “hydrogen cell” that runs on horizontal solar power supported by a vertical mirror, and it could be a major turning point in sustainable energy.

Green hydrogen is considered one of the world’s most important future energy sources in light of the global trend towards reduced pollution, clean energy and less dependence on traditional energy sources.

In this context, students Kautar Khalife, Lynn Thanbakji and Maryam Hamdo from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering spoke about the importance of the project and explained that it could be applied in solar power plants to generate hydrogen gas for use in many areas. an alternative to household gas, for generating electricity and moving away from household batteries or using it instead of fuel with the need for safety and protection by adding sensors.

The students indicated that the design mechanism is carried out in two stages, the first by adding a vertical mirror reflector to the solar panel and placing it horizontally, and the second stage is the design of a hydrogen cell, where a glass container containing water and graphite blocks were used, which are connected to an energy source solar panel using a regulator to adjust the connection voltage for these units up to 12 volts.

For his part, Dr. Tarek Kneina, professor of engineering and project leader, noted that the cell could be an important turning point in sustainable energy and contribute to two goals, namely to reduce the size of the field. solar batteries.

He said: “The project was originally designed to support homes with a home power and storage unit, and could simply be expanded with more cells to provide a larger central station.”
