A one-dimensional steady-state model for planar solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) is presented. Appropriately simplified, the model includes sufficient detail for supporting ongoing investigations involving the simulation of SOFC-based advanced energy systems. The presentation focuses on a set of nonlinear equations accounting for conservation of mass and energy along a single SOFC in a co-flow configuration. Electrochemical models also are employed, including one previously used for a zero dimensional approach. The equations are described through a phenomenological approach based on the best recent work in the field and model validation is carried out in two distinct phases using previously published information. Potential areas of application for the model presented are noted.
