An integrated SOFC plant dynamic model for power system simulation

Abstract

The design process of a SOFC plant dynamic model for a power systems simulation (PSS) commercial software package has revealed the trade-off between the satisfaction of the network dynamic requirements and a safe and durable cell operation that the plant controller should implement. This paper describes the initial fuel cell stack and power conditioner modelling methodologies that have addressed such issues.
