Overview of the Development of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells at Forschungszentrum Juelich
The SOFC group at Forschungszentrum Juelich has assembled and tested more than 220 SOFC stacks during the last 10 years, rated between 100 W and 15 kW. The topics of high-performance materials, corrosion, materials compatibility, and cost-effectiveness, including manufacturing processes, etc., are being continuously addressed. Large stacks of 5 kW and above have been operated since 2002 and have also been successfully delivered to other institutions. In parallel, lightweight stacks have been developed in the “cassette” design line for SOFC-APU. Several 1–20 kW SOFC laboratory systems are in preparation.
