The Main objectives for this work design a small hydrogen gas production unit and maximize hydrogen gas from water. A small unit was designed from stainless steel with a number of cells (9, 11, 13, 15 cells), cell distance (1.5, 1.0, 0.5 mm), duration of unit operation (15, 30, 45, 60 min) and Type of water (Acidic water and Saline water (sea water in particular)). The experimental results of hydrogen cells production unit are presented. It is used for electrical analysis of two types of water (acidic - saline). The results obtained showed that the highest production of hydrogen energy was observed with (15 cells) number was (5.12 kWh) at working time (60 min), distance between cells (0.5 mm), cell temperature (46.7°C) and water temperature (56.1°C) in the presence of saline water. At same time the lowest hydrogen energy observed with number of cells (15 cells) number was (2.606 kWh), working time (15 min), distance between cells (1.5 mm), cell temperature was (35.5°C) and water temperature was (31.2°C) in the presence of acidic water. Total energy was increased by 96.47%, increasing number of cells and lack of distance between cells.
