Reducing Virtual Development Time of SOFC System Through Advanced Optimization Methods

Webinar SOFC

Immerse yourself in the world of Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) physical modeling in our exclusive webinar and learn how to use the impressive capabilities of AVL CRUISE™ M in combination with ESTECO's intelligent optimization tool modeFRONTIER. This dynamic duo allows you to perform accelerated and efficient analysis and troubleshooting of SOFC systems in the early concept phase.

System simulation of solid oxide fuel cell applications takes into account complex phenomena such as heat and mass transport, electrochemical reactions, gas phase species conversion and the influence of material properties on stack performance. For this purpose, AVL CRUISE™ M enables multidisciplinary simulations for solid oxide fuel cell systems consisting of solid oxide fuel cell stack, reformer and afterburner. Boyu Yang, Senior Simulation Engineer at AVL Deutschland GmbH, will guide you through the steps to create real-time models of the solid oxide fuel cell and its auxiliaries and show you how to make the best use of AVL CRUISE™ M's capabilities to analyze design, performance and efficiency.

Then learn more about the seamless model coupling with modeFRONTIER and the available optimization studies for the virtual design of SOFC systems. For this purpose, Tobias Gloesslein, Technical Lead Engineer at ESTECO Software GmbH presents the state-of-the-art methods and functionalities of ESTECO's modeFRONTIER and explains the steps to analyze and efficiently optimize the system parameters of the AVL CRUISE™ M solid oxide fuel cell model with respect to their sensitivity.

Key topics and takeaways:
Creation of real-time capable models for SOFC systems
 Efficient coupling between AVL CRUISE™ M and modeFRONTIER for parameter and optimization studies
 Application of modeFRONTIER methods for system sensitivity analysis and setup of optimization studies
 Evaluation of optimization results
