Due to the different areas of application, customised system designs are necessary. Differences depending on many matters like fuel and air supply, pressure and temperature level, needed power and heat generation, mobile or stationary usage, ...
Balance of plant (BOP) components are all supporting components and auxiliary systems of a power plant. The integration of these comprehensive core components into a high efficient operating system is the challenging task. Part of this sector are
as well as typical process engineering units like
Electric Power Conversation
The fuel cell stack containing the serial connected cells is generating a DC voltage. For grid-parallel operation, an inverter is applied to feed the electrical power into the public grid. For on-board power supply of large vehicles the inverter usually fulfils 42 Volt requirements in combination with a backed battery.
An apparent disadvantage of the SOFC is that not all of the gaseous fuel can be converted directly to power and heat inside the cells. This limitation is caused by its physical principle and can therefore not be avoided. Excess fuel will be directed to a special system integrated afterburner. The excess heat is applied for internal gas preheating and fuel processing. Furthermore it can be used externally for house heating or industrial tasks.
