Solid Oxide Electrolyzer

Application ID: 74001


This example models a solid oxide electrolyzer cell wherein water vapor is reduced to form hydrogen gas on the cathode, and oxygen gas is evolved on the anode. The current distribution in the cell is coupled to the cathode mass transfer of hydrogen and water and momentum transport.

The Thermodynamics and Chemistry nodes are used to automatically define the properties of the cathode gas mixture, as well as the equilibrium potentials of the electrode reactions.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
