Pressurisation of Ip-sofc technology for second generation hybrid application - target action A

Objective

In the course of Framework 5, the European Commission has undertaken the major projects MF-SOFC and IM-SOFC-GT to develop key technology for SOFC stacks and SOFC/GT hybrids respectively. This project aims to build further on these initiatives and extend MF-SOFC technology to operation on hydrocarbon fuels (principally natural gas) within pressurised hybrid configurations. Advances in stack and system modelling achieved in part within IM-SOFC-GT will underpin this work. It is intended that reduced dimension support tubes and low cost high lateral conductivity current collector materials will be provided by a US DOE funded SECA project in return for this project making available 10kW stack blocks.

The project aims to:
- Develop 10 kW stack building blocks with integral internal reforming
- Demonstrate operation of the 10kW block at pressure with hydrocarbon fuel representative of operation on natural gas
