Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Experimental Laboratory

Metadata Updated: March 26, 2018

NETL’s Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Experimental Laboratory in Morgantown, WV, gives researchers access to models and simulations that predict how solid oxide fuel cells will behave under certain conditions. Its test stands can subject fuel cells to demanding conditions (up to 1,000 degrees Celsius and 90 pounds per square inch gauge). The lab is also equipped for current-interrupt and spectral impedance analyses. Researchers at the lab explore how single fuel cells—or small stacks of them—perform; they investigate high-temperature fuel cells, assess how contaminants degrade them, and help develop sensors that measure their temperature, strain, and heat flux. They also invent new materials to advance the use of fuel cells in more applications as well as establish testing protocols. By enabling this body of research, the lab helps scientists support the Solid State Energy Conversion Alliance Program, which strives to develop affordable fuel cell technologies that reduce the carbon emissions associated with producing power from coal.
