INSIGHT ImplementatioN in real SOFC Systems of monItoring and diaGnostic tools using signal analysis to increase tHeir lifeTime

To identify control actions able to mitigate the impact of both degradation mechanisms and faults on performance and durability of SOFC


These methodologies already developped for PEM fuel cells have been adapted to SOFC in the project.
INSIGHT outcomes opens the perspective to decrease the costs of service and SOFC stack replacement by 50%, which would correspond to a reduction of TCO by 10%/kWh by prolonging SOFC lifetime by 5%, increasing availability by 1%. These, within the limit of adding less than 2% to the total SOFC system’s cost.
