Abstract

In this paper, generation of thermodynamic losses in the micro-channels of a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell electrode is discussed. Diffusive-convective equation is implemented to compute local concentrations of reagents. The model accounts for both the Fick’s, and the Knudsen’s diffusion. For a number of cases the total losses are decomposed to isolate the contributions of the diffusion, the current conduction, and the chemical reaction irreversibilities.
