Various concepts have been proposed to use hydrocarbon fuels in solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) systems. A combination of either allothermal or adiabatic pre-reforming and water recirculation (WR) or anode off-gas recirculation (AOGR) is commonly used to convert the fuel into a hydrogen rich mixture before it is electrochemically oxidised in the...

Direct internal reforming enables optimal heat integration and reduced complexity in solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC)systems, but thermal stresses induced by the increased temperature gradients may inflict damage to the stack. Therefore, the development of adequate control strategies requires models that can accurately predict the temperature...

Direct internal reforming in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) is advantageous as it enables to heat and steam from the exothermic hydrogen oxidation reaction in the endothermic steam reforming reaction. However, it may increase potentially deteriorating temperature gradients as well. The temperature and concentration profiles can be accurately...
