Abstract
SOFC systems, working at high temperatures of about 800°C, have recently attracted significant interests for application as automotive and stationary power supply systems. This paper explores the possibilities and limitations for achievement of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) as 7 kW auxiliary power units on luxury passenger 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 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... (More)
