The purpose of this paper is to introduce the hydrogen redox electric power (HREG) and hydrogen generation systems (HRHG). The HREG offers considerable conceptual advantage such that it functions with zero energy input, zero matter input and zero emission without violating the laws of thermodynamics. Its application ranges from the large scale central-station power generation down to the small scale on-board power generation system for electric vehicles with infinite cruising range. This generator utilizes a combined energy cycle consisting of a fuel cell that produces power and an electrostatic-induction potential-superposed water electrolytic cell (ESI-PSE) for the synthesis of a pure stoichiometric H2/O2 fuel for the fuel cell. According to the calculations using the data of operational conditions for the commercial electrolyzers and fuel cells, more than 70% of the power delivered from the fuel cell can be extracted outside the cycle as net power output. Because of the simplicity, effectiveness, cleanliness and self-exciting, this novel generator may offer a potential route for its practical application to the electricity and hydrogen production systems of the future.
