Preparation and Numerical Simulation of Structural Parameters of Ni–Fe Bimetallic Porous Anode Support for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells
Optimization of preparation conditions for Ni–Fe bimetallic porous anode-supported planar solid oxide fuel cells was carried out. Experimental and literature data were used to build a 3D model of an anode-supported solid oxide fuel cell. A parametric study was carried out to determine the influence of various design parameters on performance. Some operating variables, such as thickness and porosity, were changed to observe their effects on the cell performance. Increased thickness had an adverse influence on the performance of the cell, but an increase in porosity improved performance.
