Hydrogen from water electrolysis associated with renewable energy is one of the most attractive solutions for the green energy production and storage.This work focuses on the dynamical modelling and the monitoring of Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolyser. The aim is:

1. to develop an analytical dynamical PEM electrolyser model dedicated to the control and monitoring;

2. to identify the model parameters and to propose adequate monitoring tools.

The proposed model will ne derived from physical laws and electrochemical equations and consists in a steady-state electric model coupled with a dynamical thermal model. The estimation of the model parameters will be achieved using identification and data fitting techniques based on experimental measurements.
