Comparison of Humidified Hydrogen and Partly Pre-Reformed Natural Gas as Fuel for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells applying Computational Fluid Dynamics

Abstract

A three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) approach based on the finite element method (FEM) is used to investigate a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). Governing equations for heat, gas-phase species, electron, ion and momentum transport are implemented and coupled to kinetics describing electrochemical as well as internal reforming reactions. The… (More)
