The CFCC is equipped to test SOFC ranging from milliwatt laboratory-scale single cells to 500 Watt short stacks. CFCC can bring to bear a variety of analytical equipment for real time analysis of fuel cell performance including GC- Mass Spectrometry and AC-Impedance Spectrometry. A wide range of state-of-the-art post-test materials analysis methods are available through CFCC partners, the Colorado School of Mines and the National Renewable Energy Lab. Facilities also are available for long-term endurance testing of fuel cells, up to 500 Watts output, operating on hydrogen or hydrocarbon reformate and for testing complete systems, up to 5 kilowatts, operating on natural gas.
