Solid Oxide fuel cells - An
engineering economic analysis
Center for Energy and Environmental Studies,
Dept of Engineering and Public Policy,

This presentation discusses the
present state of technology of SOFCs for stationary power generation.
Process models are developed for SOFC power plants to predict
performance for different cycle design options, including those proposed
by Dept of Energy's Vision 21 program such as SOFC - gas turbine
hybrids. The presentation also discusses the issues in design of a cell.
A finite difference computational model is developed to study the impact
of cell dimensions on cell performance and costs.
