Abstract

Among different types of fuel cells, solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) show great potential applications due to many advantages such as low emission, high efficiency, and high power rating. On the other hand, SOFC systems are beneficial because they can convert fuel such as natural gas which is supplied by popular systems in many countries into electricity efficiently using internal reforming. In facts, the load demand changes flexibly and fuel cell life time decreases by rapid thermal change. Therefore, it is important to acquire the load following performance as well as control of operation temperature. This paper addresses components of the simple SOFC power unit model used for following the variation of load demand at a local location that considers temperature characteristics using the Simulink.
