Design and simulation of reversible solid oxide cell systems for distributed scale energy storage
MetadataShow full item record
Reversible solid oxide cells (ReSOCs) are an energy conversion technology that can be used to either produce power from fuel when electricity is needed (fuel cell mode), or produce fuel from electricity when excess energy is available (electrolysis mode). By leveraging C-O-H reaction chemistry and operating at intermediate temperatures, these cells can be mildly exothermic in both operating modes, eliminating the need for external heat input or high over-potential operation during electrolysis. Tanked storage of fuel (hydrogen, carbon monoxide, methane) and exhaust (water, carbon dioxide) allows ...
