Stacks of solid oxide fuel cell with 1kW max power performance were designed on planar type employing anode-supported cells and metallic interconnects. The stacks composed of 3-cells, 8-cells, and 16-cells were fabricated and tested in serials by using anode-supported cells purchased from Indec, and sealants/interconnects prepared at RIST. In the performance test of the final 16-cells stack, OCV was recorded to be 16.7V. The peak power and the power density showed 1 kW,
, respectively. In addition, the long-term degradation rate of the power exhibited 2.25 % during 500h at
CFD Analysis on a Flow Channel of a Bipolar Plate with Varying Cross-sectional Area in a PEM Fuel Cell

Journal of the Korean society for New and Renewable Energy, volume 3, issue 3, 2007, Pages 14~19
A flow channel model of a bipolar plate with varying cross-sectional area was newly designed for improving performance and efficiency of a PEM fuel cell stack. As a result, the varying cross-sectional area model showed poor uniformity in velocity distribution, however, maximum velocity in the flow path is about 30% faster than that of the uniform cross-sectional area model. The proposed varying cross-sectional area model is expected to diffuse operating fluids more easily into diffusion layer because it has relatively higher values in pressure distribution compared with other flow channel models. It is expected that the implementation of the varying cross-sectional area model can reduce not only the mass transport loss but also the activation loss in a PEM fuel cell, and open circuit voltage of a fuel cell can thus be increased slightly.

In this study, the wave power resources at the three locations [Sokcho, Hupo, and Onsan] on the east coast of Korea were estimated by using the field measurement data and were compared with the results of previous researches. It was found that seasonal variation of the wave power is very significant on the east coast of Korean peninsula. The wave power was the smallest in the summer season at all the locations. At Hupo and Onsan, the highest value of the monthly-averaged wave power was observed in September, probably because the pathways of typhoon in September were close to both locations. At the northest location, Sockcho, in contrast, the monthly highest value of the wave power appeared in January, probably owing to the influence of storm waves driven by Donghae twister. The estimated annual average wave power was 4.5 kW/m at Sokcho, which was about two times larger than those at other two locations. It is noteworthy that this result is completely different from past researches based on wave hindcasting data. In addition, the estimates of wave power by the past researches seemed to be smaller than those of the present study, especially at the northern region of the east coast.

Most airfoils for wind turbines commercially available have been developed for aircrafts, which are operated at high Reynolds numbers. However, Reynolds numbers of wind turbines are very low compared to those of aircrafts. In other to improve wind turbine performances, airfoils for the use of wind turbine shall be designed such as S-series airfoils developed by NREL in America. The authors have designed new airfoils for wind turbines considering designated operation conditions of wind turbines and even local wind resources in Korea. The designed airfoils are characterized by improved roughness insensitivities compared to other airfoils such as S814 and S820. The developed KWA005-240 and KWA009-127 are for root and tip sections of a wind turbine blade, respectively. Although the results show much improved performances against NACA airfoils, performance data of post-stall regulation loses some accuracies due to the characteristics of the simulation tool of XFOIL. Therefore, wind tunnel experiments are required for more accurate evaluation of the designed airfoils. Currently, the experiments has been completed and the data analysis works are going on now. The final results obtained from the experiments will be published soon.

This paper demonstrates a computational method in predicting aerodynamic noise generated from wind turbines. Low frequency noise due to displacement of fluid and leading fluctuation, according to the blade passing motion, is modelled on monopole and dipole sources. They are predicted by Farassat 1A equation. Airfoil self noise and turbulence ingestion noise are modelled upon quadrupole sources and are predicted by semi-empirical formulas composed on the groundwork of Brooks et al. and Lowson. Aerodynamic flow in the vicinity of the blade should be obtained first, while noise source modelling need them as numerical inputs. Vortex Lattice Method(VLM) is used to compute aerodynamic conditions near blade. In the use of program X-foil [M.Drela] boundary layer characteristics are calculated to obtain airfoil self noise. Wind turbine blades are divided into spanwise unit panels, and each panel is considered as an independent source. Retarded time is considered, not only in low frequency noise but also In turbulence ingestion noise and airfoil self noise prediction. Numerical modelling is validated with measurement from NREL [AOC15/50 Turbine) and ETSU [Markham's VS45] wind turbine noise measurements.

The present paper describes the scale effect correction methods for scaled NREL Phase VI wind turbines by using CFD[computational fluid dynamics). For the corrections of wind turbine scale effect, various researches on the helicopter rotor scale effect were investigated and the feasibility study of the methods was performed to correct wind turbine scale effect. The present paper also introduces scale effect correction methods based on two dimensional lift slope. In order to test the present method, performance analyses of NREL Phase VI wind turbines under various scale conditions were carried out and new correction method was applied. Granting that the new correction method is valid only above Reynolds No. 100,000, it showed reasonable agreement between model and full scale wind turbines in the linear torque region.
