Thermo-chemical modeling of internal-reforming SOFCs at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory
The Idaho National Engineering Laboratory is performing research and development of a cross-flow, internal-reforming SOFC. Part of the effort entails development of a thermo-chemical computer model to execute scoping, design, and performance studies of the INTEL SOFC design. A one-dimensional model is being completed and extensions to two and three-dimensions are planned. Mass, heat, electrochemical, and chemical kinetic balance equations are presented along with preliminary simulation results.
