The dehydriding reaction between ZrCo and hydrogen is the most important role of delivering hydrogen isotopes for fusion energies. Many researchers experimented in various conditions and estimated the relationship between ZrCo and hydrogen. In this study the kinetic approaches are performed using numerical simulations between ZrCo and hydrogen. Two kinds of parameter estimations are performed for the equilibrium pressure and the kinetics modeling and those are validated by the good agreement between predicted and experimental data. Based on the numerical simulation with obtained parameters, more rapid rates of dehydriding reaction can be achieved with lower pressure and higher temperature.
