Comprehensive Theoretical Analysis of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

The last few years have given rise to a significant level of investment in fuel cell technologies due to the widely recognised benefits of this alternative power source. High electrical efficiency and low emissions of environmentally polluting gases such as CO2 fits the profile of much development into greener power options.

Solid oxide fuel cells: Principles, performance and operations from Woodhead Publishing provides a comprehensive theoretical analysis of this particular group of fuel cell assessing both the advantages and applications of solid oxide fuel cells as well as components and functionality influencing design. The basics and development of solid oxide fuel cell technology are examined covering topics from fuel cell materials to fundamental thermodynamics.

Analysis of operational features examines current flow and energy balances in addition to electrical efficiency and voltage losses. Coverage is also given to the important issues of fuel cell stability and durability incorporating chapters on performance characterisation, fuel processing and electrode poisoning. Completing the volume is a discussion of materials for solid oxide fuel cells featuring ZrO2, CeO2 and LaGa03-based solid oxide fuel cells.

Solid oxide fuel cell technology: Principles, performance and operations is a standard reference for all those researching this important field as well as those working in the power industry.
