||<p>Hydrogen is arising as a potential fuel source due to its high mass-specific energy
and wide applicability. However, hydrogen must first be pressurized before being
implemented, causing a loss in efficiency and larger issues in implementation. Current
processes produce hydrogen at low pressure and then pressurize the gaseous hydrogen
with a compressor. Thermodynamic studies have shown that producing hydrogen in pressurized
chambers could reduce the energy losses due to compression, raising generation efficiency.
These projected gains are purely theoretical, however, and ignore practical limitations.
The goal of this thesis is to design and construct a safe high-pressure hydrogen producing
system at 5000 psi and to show the steps and considerations during this process.</p>
