This three-phase Solid State Energy Conversion Alliance (SECA) Coal-Based Systems (Industry Team) project led by FuelCell Energy will develop low cost solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology for use in highly-efficient central generation power plants fueled by coal synthesis gas. Anode-supported planar SOFC technology is being developed by Versa Power Systems, Inc. WorleyParsons has provided direct support of Integrated Gasification Fuel Cell (IGFC) system analysis.
The overall goal of this project is the development of SOFC cell and stack technology suitable for use in highly-efficient, economically-competitive central generation power plant facilities fueled by coal synthesis gas (syngas). The supporting objective in Phase III is the validation of the performance and robustness of stacks and scaled stack arrays suitable for use in large-scale power generation systems such as IGFC systems, where reliable, fail-safe operation is needed.
