Background/Objectives: Implement a cell’s bench hydrogen producers for partial replacement fuel in a diesel burner, so that the generation and combustion of HHO it can be quantified and in this way make theoretical models that predict the rate of generation of this gas. Methods: With the simulations, volume data produced gas, produced by the water electrolysis and the set of variables formed such as they are, mixed temperature of the liquid form, the operating pressure, the intensity of the consumed current by the electrolyzer, the length and duration of the flame and the electrical power required. With these data characterizing the process is done. Findings: The results allow to determine the concentration of KOH is the fundamental factor that directly influences the production and all its variables, the best working concentration is 300 gr because it produces more HHO in less time compared to the others, but brings adverse effect a high current and temperature intensity, which makes an increasein the energy consumption. Application: This methodology can be used for the process of optimization and redesign of thermal engines, to maximize the output power for the same fuel and operational conditions.
