Main Article Content
The present article describes the measurements of hydrogen absorbed into an intermetallic alloy. The process of hydrogen absorption into a metal hydride tank is accompanied with generating heat that must be removed during the process. If the tank is not cooled, the gas pressure rapidly increases and even with a small amount of the stored hydrogen the pressure exceeds the permissible value. By contrast, during hydrogen desorption it is required to supply the same amount of specific heat to avoid a significant decrease in pressure which would result in a decrease in hydrogen release kinetics.
