RELIABLE ADVANCED DIAGNOSTICS AND CONTROL TOOLS FOR INCREASED LIFETIME OF SOLID OXIDE CELL TECHNOLOGY
Pushing the limits of performance and durability of fuel cells and electrolysers systems
On route from laboratory research to commercial exploitation of fuel cells and electrolysers systems a range of new challenges emerge around maximizing performance and durability to make the technologies competitive on the market. EU H2020 projects RUBY and REACTT address these challenges by joining effort of leading EU researchers and developers in academia and industry across various disciplines such as electrochemistry, electronics, information technologies and data science.
RUBY and REACTT are twin projects dedicated to the design of rather general embedded solutions for Monitoring, Diagnosis, Prognosis and Control (MDPC) for on-field operation of SOFC and PEMFC systems (RUBY), and SOEC and rSOC stacks and systems (REACTT). The event will stress the holistic framework of the two projects resulting in innovative HW and SW platforms that combine in a unique way advanced optimizing control and diagnostic techniques (including e.g. the Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy). The intended use is envisaged in areas ranging from CHP, remote backups, hydrogen generation, grid-connected and stand-alone systems.
The event will deliver a comprehensive overview and the essential projects’ outcomes and their potential for the interested stakeholders and users from academia, industry and research. The topics to be addressed include:
- methodological approaches for reliable performance of both stacks and BoP components,
- use of machine learning for advanced diagnostics,
- stack and system diagnostics,
- new solution to optimize performances,
- the role of enabling technologies for implementation,
- impact on efficiency, performance, reliability, lifetime and maintenance of SOFC, PEMFC and SOEC.
The workshop is a half-day event and will take place on Friday 15th Sept 2023 at the Grand Hotel Quisisana on Capri, IT (the same location as EFC 2023).
