New publication co-authored by IEn researchers in Energy

2021 / 09 / 14

New publication entitled "Mathematical approaches to modelling the mass transfer process in solid oxide fuel cell anode" was published in a highly-ranked magazine Energy. The article was co-authored by Marcin Blesznowski (PhD) and Prof. Jakub Kupecki from IEn's HiTEP. The publication discusses results of a comprehensive analysis of anodes of SOFC in order to develop new CFD tool for studies of mass transport in porous structures. As a results of combining experimental and numerical techniques, model which enables reduction of cost and time required for the optimization of the mass transport process through SOC's porous electrode was proposed and validated.

New publication by IEn researchers

2021 / 09 / 06

In the magazine Rynek Energii (4 /155, August 2021) there has been published the article prepared by researchers from IEn's Mechanical Division. The authors - Marcin Maternicki, Jacek Grodzicki, Krzysztof Romaniuk and Marek Rusiniak published their work entitled: Effect of metallographic research method on material life assessment. The article presents the relation between material life assessment as a result of metallographic research and the methods of specimen preparation and the equipment used, on an example of three component steels (Cr-Mo-V), type 14MoV6-3 (13HMF), and two components steels (Cr-Mo), type 10CrMo9-10 (10H2M).

New publication by IEn researchers on SOFC

2020 / 12 / 30

The manuscript co-authored by Marek Skrzypkiewicz and Jakub Kupecki from HiTEP "Analysis of H2S-related short-term degradation and regeneration of anode and electrolyte supported solid oxide fuel cells fueled with biomass steam gasifier product gas" was published in Energy (Pongratz, Subotić, Schroettner, Hochenauer, Skrzypkiewicz, Kupecki, Anca-Couce, Scharler). The publication discusses the possibility of regenerating SOFCs which were affected by the presence of H2S in producer gas from biomass gasifier. Two types of SOFC were studied, including anode supported SOFC produced at IEn.
