MICROX sensors have successfully assisted with the commissioning of 2 off 1kWe Solid Oxide Fuel Cell stacks at MTEC, Thailand. An array of MICROX O sensors was deployed around the stack to measure oxygen partial pressure at the cathode. The oxygen distribution was monitored whilst gradually loading the stack, and the cathode air supply was tuned in order to provide sufficient oxidant to each bank of cells, whilst minimising heat loss. Both stacks produced well in excess of the rated 1kW of electrical power.
