Chen Z, Atkinson A, Brandon N, 2017, Characterization of deformation and damage in porous sofc components via spherical indentation and simulation, Pages: 143-157, ISSN: 0196-6219

© 2018 by World Scientific Publishing Europe Ltd. The aim of this work is to present the methodology to characterize deformation and contact damage initiation and evolution in porous bulk and film components used in solid oxide fuel cells, based on indentation and simulation. Spherical indentation tests at a broad range of loads (50-10000 mN) were carried out on porous bulk and film electrodes with different levels of porosity, and on bilayer system. An axisymmetric model based on the Gurson model used for porous materials was developed to simulate the indentation processes. Elasticity and hardness of each component were reliably determined via both experiments and modelling. Inverse analysis via comparison of experimental indentation response curves and simulation-generated curves shows a very different relation between hardness and yield stress, compared with dense materials. Cracking behaviour was examined and appropriately explained by FEM results. Further insight of the deformation and damage behaviour was also obtained based on microstructural study using FIB-SEM. Overall, the study shows that the model developed in this work is highly applicable for the description the deformation and damage characteristics in porous bulk and film ceramics.

Brandon NP, Ruiz-Trejo E, Boldrin P, 2017, Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Lifetime and Reliability: Critical Challenges in Fuel Cells, ISBN: 9780081011027

© 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Lifetime and Reliability: Critical Challenges in Fuel Cells presents in one volume the most recent research that aims at solving key issues for the deployment of SOFC at a commercial scale and for a wider range of applications. To achieve that, authors from different regions and backgrounds address topics such as electrolytes, contaminants, redox cycling, gas-tight seals, and electrode microstructure. Lifetime issues for particular elements of the fuel cells, like cathodes, interconnects, and fuel processors, are covered as well as new materials. They also examine the balance of SOFC plants, correlations between structure and electrochemical performance, methods for analysis of performance and degradation assessment, and computational and statistical approaches to quantify degradation. For its holistic approach, this book can be used both as an introduction to these issues and a reference resource for all involved in research and application of solid oxide fuel cells, especially those developing understanding in industrial applications of the lifetime issues. This includes researchers in academia and industrial R&D, graduate students and professionals in energy engineering, electrochemistry, and materials sciences for energy applications. It might also be of particular interest to analysts who are looking into integrating SOFCs into energy systems. Brings together in a single volume leading research and expert thinking around the broad topic of SOFC lifetime and durability. Explores issues that affect solid oxide fuel cells elements, materials, and systems with a holistic approach. Provides a practical reference for overcoming some of the common failure mechanisms of SOFCs. Features coverage of integrating SOFCs into energy systems.

© 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Electrode microstructure is one of the main factors determining the performance and durability of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). The degradation is intimately linked to the microstructure, which in turn depends upon manufacturing and operation conditions. In this chapter we discuss the main causes for degradation of electrodes, concentrating mainly on the anode and present the techniques-both typical and state-of-the-art to follow these changes. We emphasize the need to quantitatively link the microstructural properties (e.g., triple-phase boundaries, porosity, and tortuosity) with the electrochemical responses measured and, most importantly, to link the change in microstructure to the performance degradation via suitable models. The knowledge gained must then be used to design new electrodes that can extend the lifetime of SOFCs once the critical parameters have been identified.

Cooper SJ, Brandon NP, 2017, An Introduction to Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Materials, Technology and Applications, ISBN: 9780081011027

© 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. This chapter begins with a brief history of fuel cell development and introduces solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) as high efficiency energy conversion devices. Following this the fundamentals of SOFC performance and cell design are explored, with special focus given to the significance of operating temperature and microstructure. Next the current commercial status of SOFCs is outlined in brief. Finally, SOFC degradation, the major theme of this book, is introduced; the various mechanisms are split into the two broad categories of physical and chemical degradation.

© 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are a technology rapidly developing toward widespread commercialization, with hundreds of megawatts of generation capacity installed in the field for large-scale power generation (100. kW-1. MW), and small-scale distributed power generation (<5. kW scale) undergoing large precommercial field trials in Europe and Japan. Although rapidly improving, challenges still remain in achieving SOFC stack operating lives of up to 90,000. h at a cost competitive with more established power generation technology. This chapter provides a review of the current development status of the main SOFC developers and technology variants based on publicly available literature. The techniques being developed to accelerate technology development cycles by enabling lifetime prediction from relatively short-duration tests are also discussed.
