Alhelfi, Ali Kadhim Hadi LU ; Yuan, Jinliang LU and Sundén, Bengt LU (2012) 10th ASME Fuel Cell Science, Engineering and Technology Conference In Proceedings Of The ASME 10th Fuel Cell Science, Engineering, and Technology Conference, 2012 p.317-325
Abstract
This paper explores the potentials of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) as 3 kW auxiliary power units for trucks and military vehicles operating on diesel fuel. Various issues are discussed, e.g., the requirements and specifications for the unit as well as the advantages, challenges, and development issues for SOFCs in such applications. System design and analysis are carried out. The major component of the system is the fuel cell stack. The calculations are performed for two voltage systems 12/14 V and 36/42 V, respectively. The influences of others parameters like the mass flow rates of air and gases, water production and heat production are also evaluated for the two voltage systems.
