CIMAC WG17 | Guideline - Hydrogen in Stationary 4-Stroke Gas Engines for Power Generation

The CIMAC Guideline ‘Hydrogen in Stationary 4-Stroke Gas Engines for Power Generation’ has been compiled by the CIMAC WG17 'Gas Engines' members and describes influence on gas engine operation, controls and hardware during operation on hydrogen/natural gas blends up to pure hydrogen. This usage of hydrogen as fuel is becoming increasingly important as energy is stored in chemical form as hydrogen when renewable energy is in oversupply. Furthermore, using hydrogen blends up to pure hydrogen in reciprocating engines is seen as a key enabler of energy decarbonization.

This guideline focuses on land-based stationary power generation 4-stroke gas engines. Marine applications, gas compression, and other non-road mobile machinery are out of the present scope. The publication can be downloaded from the below link or on the right hand side.
