தமிழகத்தின் மின்சார பிரச்சனையை நிரந்தரமாக தீர்க்க ஒரு எளிய சிறந்த வழி ..bloom energy.
bloom energy என்றால் என்ன? அமெரிக்க வை சேர்ந்த நம் இந்திய வம்சாவழி dr. sridar என்ற விஞ்ஞானியின் கண்டுபிடிப்பு தான் bloom energy. இதை பற்றி கீழ் வரும் பகுதிகளில் விளக்கி உள்ளேன்
What is an Energy Server - bloom energy
Built with patented solid oxide fuel cell technology, Bloom's Energy Server™ is a new class of distributed power generator, producing clean, reliable, affordable electricity at the customer site.
Fuel cells are devices that convert fuel into electricity through a clean electro-chemical process rather than dirty combustion. They are like batteries except that they always run. Bloom energy's particular type of fuel cell technology is different than legacy "hydrogen" fuel cells in three main ways:
1.Low cost materials – bloom cells use a common sand-like powder instead of precious
metals like platinum or corrosive materials like acids.
2.High electrical efficiency – bloom servers can convert fuel into electricity at nearly twice the
rate of some legacy technologies
3.Fuel flexibility – bloom tems are capable of using either renewable or fossil fuels
Each Bloom Energy Server provides 200kW of power, enough to meet the baseload needs of 160 average homes or an office building... day and night, in roughly the footprint of a standard parking space. For more power simply add more energy servers.
Bloom Energy Server Architecture
At the heart of every Energy Server™ is Bloom's patented solid oxide fuel cell technology.
Each Energy Server consists of thousands of Bloom's fuel cells. Each cell is a flat solid ceramic square made from a common sand-like "powder."
Each Bloom Energy fuel cell is capable of producing about 25W... enough to power a light bulb. For more power, the cells are sandwiched, along with metal interconnect plates into a fuel cell "stack". A few stacks, together about the size of a loaf of bread, is enough to power an average home.
In an Energy Server, multiple stacks are aggregated together into a "power module", and then multiple power modules, along with a common fuel input and electrical output are assembled as a complete tem.
For more power, multiple Energy Server tems can be deployed side by side.
In addition to Bloom's unmatched performance, this modular architecture offers...
easy and fast deployment
inherent redundancy for fault tolerance
high availability (one power module can be serviced while all others continue to operate)
What is Distributed Generation?
Distributed generation (DG) refers to power generation at the point of consumption. Generating power on-site, rather than centrally, eliminates the cost, complexity, interdepencies, and inefficiencies associated with transmission and distribution. Like distributed computing (i.e. the PC) and distributed telephony (i.e. the mobile phone), distributed generation shifts control to the consumer.
The World Needs Distributed Generation that is Clean and Continuous
Historically, distributed generation meant combustion generators (e.g. diesel gensets). They were affordable, and in some cases reliable, but they were not clean. While many people will tolerate dirty generation thousands of miles away from them, they think twice when it is outside their bedroom window or office door.
Recently, solar has become a popular distributed generation option. Although the output is clean it is also intermittent, making it an incomplete strategy for businesses that need power around the clock, including when the sun is not shining.
The Benefits of Bloom Energy
Bloom Energy is a Distributed Generation solution that is clean and reliable and affordable all at the same time. Bloom's Energy Servers can produce clean energy 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, generating more electrons than intermittent solutions, and delivering faster payback and greater environmental benefits for the customer. And while other DG tems may require lengthy installations, sunny locations, or demand for consistent 24/7/365 heat load, Bloom's tems are easy and fast to install, practically anywhere.
As Distributed Generation moves to the forefront of corporate consciousness, Bloom Energy Servers are perfectly designed to meet the demanding needs of today's economically and environmentally minded companies
The US Government is going in for bloom energy aggressively . Even the CIA of USA along with other multinational companies
like eBay, AT&T, Google,and over 200 bloom energy servers deployed in California ,USA, this is the hottest and simplest
technology which requires less than even one year to deploy and use, with the least space and resources at a very low cost of generating
electricity. I hope this message reaches Tamil Nadu Government which is in dire need of electricity power. Please can someone take this
message to the relevent people concerned. I hope atleast this time , my message reaches Government of Tamil Nadu or India.
