Scale up of a multi-functional solid oxide fuel cell to multi-tens of kilowatt levels ('MF-SOFC')


Objectives and problems to be solved:
This project aims to develop a MF-SOFC stack with a nominal rating of ~20 kWe, which will be suitable for retrofitting with internal reforming modules aggregating ~50 kWe. Design and manufacturing specifications will be produced, including procedures of building and operating a sub-megawatt system. The universal MF-SOFC module, which is the building block of the system, requires scale up in rating and performance in line with commercial targets of durability, reliability and cost. A detailed understanding of the factors effecting degradation in performance over time is required, and is as such a major focus of development within the programme. Description of work: There are six main work packages within the project:
WP1 Design and build of a MF-SOFC stack and system;
-A product definition;
-A draft manufacturing specification for module supports;
-A draft manufacturing specification for modules with improved reliability and durability;
-Preliminary design of 10-20kW stack.
