Power management system

We aim to create a pier that is primarily or entirely sustainable in terms of power. In this self-study report, I will assess the feasibility of our system, focusing specifically on power generation, consumption, and the carbon footprint of our system compared to traditional systems. At the end of this paragraph, I will provide a conclusion on the feasibility of the project and the specific specifications of the components if the system proves to be viable.



Formation of the system

To test the feasibility, we need to conclude the power chain. In our idea imagination, our hydrogen was from the distillation of seawater and powered by the electricity generated from the solar panel. Here is the diagram that illustrate the power chain.


Calculating the electricity needed

During this process, we provide a simulation to determine the electricity requirements for a single trip. Subsequently, we trace back to calculate the total energy needed to generate the required amount of hydrogen.



 Carbon comparison with the traditional diesel engine


calculation of the need for solar penal

In the final stage, we conducted an analysis of solar radiation data, focusing specifically on Hong Kong. Based on our observations, we derived a conclusion regarding the number of solar panels required to meet the electricity demand for an entire day. This information is instrumental in establishing goals for the design of the pier as well as the overall layout of the surrounding area, considering the placement of solar panels.
