Abstract

In the present work, thermodynamic analysis of a molten carbonate fuel cell (MCFC) is considered. Accordingly, a thermodynamic model is developed to understand performance of the cell at different operating conditions. The effect of operating parameters like working temperature, fuel utilization, current density, gas constituents etc. on the performance of the basic MCFC are studied to understand the behaviour of the cell. It is noticed that the cell voltage shows a strong dependence on the operating temperature. The actual cell voltage is less than the reversible cell voltage because of the losses occurs in a cell which is taken constant in the present analysis. Result shows that an operating temperature of 6500C offers an optimization for better performance and cell life.

Key Words
