This book fills the need for a practical reference for all scientists and graduate students who are seeking to define a mathematical model for Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) simulation. Structured in two parts, part one presents the basic theory, and the general equations describing SOFC operation phenomena. Part two deals with the application of the theory to practical examples, where different SOFC geometries, configurations, and different phenomena are analyzed in detail.
- The book provides a comprehensive analysis of different approaches for modelling SOFC
- Theory is complemented with examples and the related data used in the implementation
- Researchers will find it as a starting point and a reference for defining their own models
- Mathematical models for single repeating units, single cells, stacks and systems, at steady-state and dynamic conditions are fully defined and analyzed.
