About the Project
The goal of this project is to optimise the operating strategy of a solid oxide electrolyser to maximise syngas output and electrolyser lifetime. The project is predominantly experimental and will investigate the degradation occurring in a solid oxide cell and strategies to overcome it, including voltage pulsing and cycling between fuel cell and electrolysis modes. The effect of impurities in the gas feed, to mimic those experienced in flue gas from power plants and industrial processes, will be investigated.
Training will be provided on all the experimental equipment used, including high temperature electrolysis test stations, scanning electron microscopy, impedance spectroscopy, gas chromatography and relevant software.
This project covers many aspects of engineering and is in an exciting and rapidly developing field. Clean energy is becoming increasingly important and the employment prospects at the end of the project are excellent.
Lab consumables e.g. gases, cell materials. Equipment is already available in my laboratory. Consumables will be funded through grants that I have and am currently applying for.
