While the main barrier for the development of hydrogen adsorption type storage systems remains the material development, an improved thermal management may offer solutions to minimize the penalties in the amount of stored gas during fast-filling and the residual amount of hydrogen during discharging operations. The emphasis of this work was to experimentally investigate the dynamical thermal behavior of a hydrogen cryoadsorption storage system during fast-filling operations. The experiments were conducted with granulated activated carbon and MOF adsorbents. The influence of the charge pressure and the gas flow rate on the temperature elevations and the amount of filled hydrogen gas was analyzed. The heat generated in the storage vessel originates from the released heat of adsorption, gas compression work and thermal energy transfer that takes place when high pressure gas at the ambient temperature is introduced to the tank. A typical average temperature increase observed during the charging of the test tank, filled with the activated carbon (NORIT R0.8 extra), to 2 MPa was about 21 K. Such temperature elevation leads to a significant decrease in adsorption storage capacity.
