Analysis of a distributed grid-connected fuel cell during fault conditions

Stewart, E.M. and Tumilty, R. and Fletcher, J.E. and Lutz, A. and Ault, G.W. and McDonald, J.R. (2010) Analysis of a distributed grid-connected fuel cell during fault conditions. IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, 25 (1). pp. 497-505. ISSN 0885-8950

The effect of a short circuit fault and a voltage sag fault on a distributed grid-connected solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) is investigated in this paper. The fuel cell is modeled in Simulink and the performance is verified against experimental load testing data. Grid faults are simulated, and conclusions are drawn on the fuel cell response and the effects of the fault condition on internal fuel cell parameters.
