What is lotus low temperature sofc chp system

What is LOTUS?Low Temperature SOFC µ-CHP System

  • Project of FCH JU (Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking)

  • 3 year project: January 2011- December 2013

  • Objectives:

    • CHP system at reduced stack-temperature of 650°C based on ASC technology

    • low cost, mass-produced and proven components

    • high electrical efficiency (min. 45%) and high total system efficiency

    • appropriate solutions for real-world operation

  • U/I-Measurements at varying temperature and fuel-input provided by SOFCPower.

  • Model parameters identified by least squares fit of area specific cell resistance.

Lotus design studies boundary conditions for the lotus system design

LOTUS Design StudiesBoundary Conditions for the LOTUS System Design

  • stack temperature predetermines reforming temperature  650 °C

  • soot-free reformer operation requires S/C ~ 2 .. 3

  • in practical µCHP-operation a lower system S/C is essential

  • controlled stack-internal reforming (IR) is beneficial for system efficiency

  • for start-up and shut-down of ASC a reducing atmosphere > 300 °C is required

  • part load operation and independent control of power to heat ratio is beneficial for system economics

  • LOTUS system design is governed

  • by the fuel reforming concept and its process integration

  • Implementation of the LOTUS Fuel Reforming Concept

    • fuel bypass (FBP) for controlled stack-internal reforming

    • downscaled steam reformer (SR)

    • SR directly heated by burner exhaust (AB or SB)

    • optional use of oxidative steam reforming
