The efficiency of an electrolyser is an indicator of the efficiency of energy conversion. A differentiation is made here between energetic and faradic efficiencies.

When a new technology is developed, it is important that it can be economically utilized. If the efficiency is low, then there is no sense in bringing it to market.

Different efficiencies of the electrolyser are examined in this experiment.


  • Experiment is part of a complete solution set with a total of 10 experiments for Renewable Energy fuel-cell technology
  • The power supply used is versatile and is particularly suitable for pupil tests for all ages
  • Doubled learning success: Electric circuit diagram on top, real components can be seen at the bottom
