HArnessing Degradation mechanisms to prescribe Accelerated Stress Tests for the Realization of SOC lifetime prediction Algorithms

Project description

Defining accelerated stress tests for longer-lasting solid oxide fuel cells and electrolysers

A solid oxide fuel cell is a fuelled battery that provides a clean and efficient way to generate power from fuel. Switching to electrolyser mode, it can generate hydrogen from steam and electricity. Accelerated stress tests deliberately stress the catalyst for a short period of time to assess the stability of new materials without having to use them in an operational fuel cell over a long-term period. The EU-funded AD ASTRA project aims to define accelerated stress testing protocols deduced from a systematic understanding of degradation mechanisms in aged components of solid oxide cell stacks operating in both fuel cell and electrolysis modes. The focus will be on tackling fuel and oxygen electrode issues and interconnect contact losses.
