Abstract: Due to the tight coupling of physical processes inside solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs), efficient control of these devices depends largely on the proper pairing of controlled and manipulated variables. The present study investigates the uncontrolled, dynamic behavior of an SOFC stack that is intended for use in a hybrid SOFC-gas turbine (GT) system. A numerical fuel cell model is developed based on charge, species mass, energy, and momentum balances, and an equivalent circuit is used to combine the fuel cell's …
