Abstract

In this paper numerical models of high temperature fuel cells (MCFC and SOFC) are presented. These models, that are based on a thermochemical and electrochemical approach and employ semi-empirical equations, have been validated by using experimental data both measured in test stations and available from technical literature. Numerical results show that the models allow to characterize the behavior of the high temperature fuel cells with a good approximation so, due to the simplicity of the simulation procedure, they can be useful tools for performance prediction and analysis of more complex systems in which the fuel cells are one of the component.
