A procedure of designing a photovoltaic plant with a stationary cylindrical parabolic concentrator is given. The possibility of using solar electricity in combination with high-pressure hydrogen electrolysis cells is considered. Such a combination is intended to reduce the environmental burden in an urbanized area.


Keywords: renewable energy sources, photoelectric converter, electrolyzer, hydrogen, concentrator
