System simulation of Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) applications takes into account complex phenomena such as heat and mass transport, electrochemical reactions, gas phase species conversion and the influence of material properties on stack performance.

This webinar takes a deep dive into the world of Solid Oxide Fuel Cells physical modeling by showcasing the benefits from coupling ESTECO modeFRONTIER and AVL CRUISE™ M. This dynamic duo allows engineers to perform accelerated and efficient analysis and troubleshooting of SOFC systems in the early concept phase.

Boyu Yang, Senior Simulation Engineer at AVL Deutschland GmbH, will guide you through the steps to create real-time models of the solid oxide fuel cell and its auxiliaries and show you how to make the best use of AVL CRUISE™ M's capabilities to analyze design, performance and efficiency.
Tobias Gloesslein, Technical Lead Engineer at ESTECO Software GmbH presents the state-of-the-art methods and functionalities of ESTECO modeFRONTIER and explains the steps to analyze and efficiently optimize the system parameters of the AVL CRUISE™ M solid oxide fuel cell model with respect to their sensitivity.

The webinar is going to be in German language. Register here.


Key topics and takeaways:
• ESTECO and AVL introduction
• Creation of real-time capable models for SOFC systems
• Efficient coupling between AVL CRUISE™ M and modeFRONTIER for parameter and optimization studies
• Application of modeFRONTIER methods for system sensitivity analysis and setup of optimization studies
• Evaluation of optimization results
