System Efficiency Analysis of SOFC Coupling with Air, Mixed Air-Steam and Steam Gasification Fueled by Thailand Rice Husk
In this work, integrative biomass gasification with solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) system using rice husk as feedstock was studied under various operations. It was found that the stand-alone mixed air-steam gasification provided significant higher benefit than alone air and steam gasification. The mathematical model was developed to predict the electrical, thermal and overall efficiency of the system. It was found that the SOFC with steam gasification also provided the greatest overall efficiency of 96%. Hence, the steam gasification is a promising option for coupling with SOFC to generate electricity from biomass.
