Summary
While the gas flowrate, number of reactants, load power, and heater power will vary, the typical fideris system for testing solid oxide fuel cells will include a furnace, gas delivery with fail safe purge on anode and cathode, electronic load, water flow control, and heater control.  Our standard loads include cell voltage monitoring for 10 cells with additional cell voltage monitoring available in groups of ten with no practical limit on the number of CVM inputs.  Several temperature inp
