Abstract

In this work, the effect of the current collector structure on the performance of MCFCs was investigated through the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and experiments. The three dimensional gas flow channel model for simulating current collector was considered instead of using porous media [1]. From the simulation and experiments, it was found that the current collector having large gas open area and ensuring the stable contact between components enhance the performance of the cell.
