Characterization of Propane-Fueled SOFC Portable Power Systems
propane-fueled SOFC portable power systems
Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) have the capability to use hydrocarbon fuels and the potential to offer high efficiency and reliable power to many end users. Propane is a popular and readily available commercial fuel for a wide range of portable applications. This paper discusses various aspects of several propane-fueled and thermally self-sustained SOFC portable power systems, such as startup and shutdown characteristics, thermal cycling, load cycling, power output stability, effects of environmental temperatures and humidity on performance, and durability.
