Scope: 

The NGV 4 committee expanded its scope to address dispensing hydrogen for hydrogen gas powered vehicles. The activity includes the following standards projects:

HGV 4.1 Hydrogen Dispensers
Scope:
This standard details mechanical and electrical features and construction of newly manufactured systems that dispense hydrogen gas for vehicles, intended primarily to dispense fuel directly into the vehicle fuel storage container. Each dispenser may have the capability of independently fueling more than one vehicle simultaneously. This standard does not apply to the nozzle; vehicle to station communication; compression and ancillary equipment; hydrogen gas storage containers; vehicle fueling appliances for HGV remote station or Kiosk consoles and remote sequencing equipment; and other remote equipment not supplied as part of the dispenser.

Status:
Published as an ANSI standard in 2012. Temporarily withdrawn, but re-published as a CSA standard in April 2013. Approved as an ANSI standard.
HGV 4.2 Hose and Hose Assemblies for Hydrogen Vehicles and Dispensing Systems

HGV 4.2 Hose and Hose Assemblies for Hydrogen Vehicles and Dispensing Systems
Scope:

This standard contains safety requirements for the material, design, manufacture and testing of gaseous hydrogen hose and hose assemblies which are used as a part of the dispensing station to connect the dispenser to the refueling nozzle; used as part of a vehicle on-board fuel system; or used as vent lines which carry gas to a safe location for either vehicles or dispensing systems.

Status:
Published as an ANSI standard in 2012. Temporarily withdrawn, but re-published as a CSA standard in April 2013. Approved as an ANSI standard.

HGV 4.3 Fueling Parameters for Hydrogen Dispensing System
Scope:
This standard establishes the test method, criteria, and apparatus to evaluate a hydrogen fueling station as it relates to achieving the protocol specified in SAE TIR J2601 - 2010, Fueling Protocols for Light Duty Gaseous Hydrogen Surface Vehicles, for fueling, and the SAE TIR J2799, 70 MPa Compressed Hydrogen Surface Vehicle Fueling Connection Device and Optional Vehicle to Station Communications for communications with light duty vehicle hydrogen storage systems less than 10 kg (37.2 lbs). The testing evaluation applies to fueling stations designed to fill vehicle storage systems following the prescribed protocol defined in SAE TIR J2601 - 2010 that targets rapid fills, while respecting temperature, pressure, and fuel density safety limits. For fueling stations with the capability for communications with the vehicle, these test methods include the approach to confirm the requirements specified in SAE TIR J2799/J2601. Newly manufactured hydrogen fueling stations shall be tested according to this standard prior to initial operation of the station for fueling vehicles. This standard is also intended to provide test methods for validation of existing hydrogen fueling stations. Unless otherwise specified, the requirements in this document apply to the verification of SAE TIR J2601- 2010 compliant Hydrogen Fueling Stations (HFS). Status: Publication as a CSA standard in 2012. Available at www.shop.csa.ca Work on the next edition to align with SAE J2601 is ongoing.

Status:
Published as an ANSI standard in 2016.

HGV 4.4 Breakaway Devices for Hoses Used in Hydrogen Vehicle Fueling Stations
Scope:
This standard contains safety requirements for the material, design, manufacture and testing of newly manufactured fueling hose breakaway devices. This is not applicable to Vehicle Refueling Appliances

HGV 4.4 Dispenser Breakaway Devices or Vehicle Breakaway Components.
Status:
Published as a CSA standard in December 2008. Revised and published as an ANSI standard in July 2012. Temporarily withdrawn, but re-published as a CSA standard in April 2013. Approved as an ANSI standard.

HGV 4.5 Priority and Sequencing Equipment for Gaseous Hydrogen Dispensing Systems
Scope:

This standard applies to priority and sequencing equipment which are part of a gaseous hydrogen vehicle fueling system. This standard contains safety requirements for the design, manufacture and testing of the priority and sequencing systems for gaseous hydrogen dispensers which are designed primarily to provide compressed hydrogen for vehicle fueling stations. This standard does not apply to the pressure swing adsorber sequencing panel or the gas dryer sequencing panel.
Status:
Published as a CSA standard in December 2008. Revised and published as an ANSI standard in July 2012. Temporarily withdrawn, but re-published as a CSA standard in April 2013. Approved as an ANSI standard.

HGV 4.6 Manually Operated Valves Used in Gaseous Hydrogen Vehicle Fueling Stations
Scope:
This standard contains safety requirements for the design, manufacture and testing of manually operated valves for gaseous hydrogen vehicle fueling stations. This standard does not apply to fuel storage container shut-off valves or fueling nozzle valves. Status: Published as a CSA standard in December 2008 and March 2013. Approved as an ANSI standard.

HGV 4.7 Automatic Pressure Operated Valves for Use in Gaseous Hydrogen Vehicle Fueling Stations
Scope:
This standard contains safety requirements for the design, manufacture and testing of automatic, pressure operated valves used in gaseous hydrogen vehicle fueling stations. This standard does not apply electrically actuated valves, hydraulically actuated valves, pressure regulating valves, pressure relief valves or fueling nozzle valves.
Status:
Published as a CSA standard in December 2008 and March 2013. Approved as an ANSI standard.

HGV 4.8 Hydrogen Gas vehicle Fueling Stations Compressor
Scope:
This standard contains safety requirements for the design, manufacture and testing of gaseous hydrogen compressor packages used in fueling station service. This standard applies to newly manufactured equipment designed primarily to provide compressed hydrogen for vehicle fueling stations. This standard does not apply to vehicle fueling appliances for HGV or compressor packages used for nonvehicular fuel appliances
Status:
Published as a CSA standard in January 2013. Approved as an ANSI standard.

HGV 4.9 Fueling System Guideline
Scope:

This standard specifies the characteristics of outdoor public and non-public fueling Hydrogen Fueling Stations (HFS) that dispenses gaseous hydrogen used as fuel to fill land vehicles equipped with an onboard CSA HGV-2 compressed hydrogen storage container(s). The HFS is defined as an integration of hydrogen supply, compression, storage and dispensing subsystems. HFS performance is measured at the dispenser nozzle outlet: the interface between the station and vehicle.
Status:
Reviewing industry comments. Anticipate published as a CSA standard by December 2015.

HGV 4.10 Performance of Fittings for Compressed Hydrogen Gas and Hydrogen Rich Gas Mixtures
Scope:
This standard applies to the specification of uniform test methods for the testing and performance evaluation, including hydrogen compatibility, of fittings to be used with compressed hydrogen gas.  The scope of the document indicates the term ‘fittings’ includes fittings, connectors, and stud ends for ports.
