PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The world`s first 100 kWe class Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) power generation system is being supplied by Westinghouse and is sponsored by EDB/ELSAM, a consortium of Dutch and Danish utilities. This natural gas fueled experimental field unit will be installed near Arnhem, The Netherlands, at an auxiliary district heating plant. The module utilizes tubular Air Electrode Supported SOFCs. The system will achieve an electrical generation efficiency of 49%, and this combined with recovery of heat for district heating can yield an overall fuel effectiveness approaching 80%. Significant progress toward reduction of CO{sub 2}, a greenhouse gas, will be obtained, ... continued below
