Solid Oxide Fuels Cells: Facts and Figures
John T.S. Irvine
In this book:
- Contains contributions by experts in the field of solid oxide fuel cell technology
- Provides the reader with a critical assessment of alterative electrolytes and anodes
- Discusses the possible future development of solid oxide fuel cell technology
Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) operate at high temperatures allowing more fuel flexibility and also useful heat output and so increase total efficiency, but does give some interesting engineering challenges. Solid Oxide Fuels Cells: Facts and Figures provides clear and accurate data for a selection of SOFC topics from the specific details of Ni cermet anodes, chemical expansion in materials, and the measuring and modelling of mechanical stresses, to the broader scope of the history and present design of cells, to SOFC systems and the future of SOFC.
