Run the Model
The HySCapE model is using the following defaults:
The Hydrogen Station Capacity Evaluation (HySCapE) model is designed to estimate hydrogen station capacity, based on user inputs for the hydrogen station capacity and pre-defined fueling demand profile. HySCapE is a mass balance model with simple, transparent methods for capacity estimation that can be consistently applied for different station configurations. This model is not a design tool or customized for individual station details like control strategy.
HySCapE reads the external user inputs and balances mass every second based on the predefined fueling demand scenario. The capacity calculation utilizes CSA HGV 4.9  as the basis to determine one fill. The model has algorithms for dispensing, compression, delivery, and production. HySCapE outputs the number of kilograms (kg) dispensed in total and for full fills. A full fill is assumed to be greater than or equal to 95% state-of-charge (SOC). The output also includes more details on fill count, amount, duration, ending SOC, and station storage pressures and masses for the user to see how the algorithms were applied.
