Does QuantityWare BCG support hydrogen quantity conversions?

Due to strong industry demand, QuantityWare has defined a development strategy for hydrogen quantity conversions, which is published in note 000106.

Planning for the first release in Q3 2022 of a high pressure hydrogen solution – as part of QuantityWare BCG 3.0 – has been made. Read note 000101 for further details.

Already, a straightforward ideal gas approach – available to all BCG 3.0 customers – may be sufficient for your SAP ERP logistics business processes for hydrogen:

Ideal Gas Coverage for Hydrogen – Example:

If you only require data capture and conversions of low pressure hydrogen volumes, masses (and energies), you may consider utilizing a BCG ideal gas low pressure MQCI conversion group. Then you just require the hydrogen density (and heating value) for the ideal gas calculations.

If you have installed BCS 3.0A CSP02 or BCS 3.0B CSP01 (released September 2021) – simply select conversion group QVFY from your BCG template client 045:

Otherwise, proceed as follows:

Copy e.g. template conversion group QVF0 to YVF0 to a base of 0 °C / 0 °C and use hydrogen data (heating value and density) of your supplier (Here one of many available examples of Supplier Data Sheets):

Note: QuantityWare BCG supports dry natural gas (high and low pressure processing), LNG and NGL quantity conversions. Thus, hydrogen quantity conversions are not included by definition. See the BCS Supported Products Manual for details. With the release of the high pressure hydrogen quantity conversion solution in Q3 2022, hydrogen quantity conversions will be included into the supported products defined for BCG.
