The Solid Oxide Fuel Cell R&D activities
are done within a product oriented process.
All work is based on thermodynamic models
and includes the analysis of process cycles,
stacks, design optimisations and additional
measurements in our laboratories.
Proceedings have been made with the modelling
of highly thermal integrated SOFC - heat
engine cycles. The ongoing analysis of SOFC
- heat engine systems for mobile applications
is an interesting aspect of this work. The
SOFC-GT system presented last year has been
compared with a SOFC - Stirling engine module.
A focus of the actual practical work is
on the reforming of liquid fossil fuels.
at HANNOVER FAIR 2002:
The exhibits will show new possibilities
of the integration of SOFC - Stirling engine
modules on a mid-class automotive vehicle.
An improvement in efficiency might be achieved
if the thermal integration is successfully
