Abstract

A package consisting of a vacuum insulator and a heat exchanger was designed to enable power sources based on micro-SOFCs fueled by liquid fuels thermally sustainable and consistent with other electronics in mobile electronic devices. Gas-liquid heat exchanger worked for cooling the edge of the thermal insulator and recovering the latent and sensible heat of exhaust gases. Numerical analysis using a finite element method and experiment using a prototype package revealed that using liquid fuels based on methanol could reduce the surface temperature of the package to lower than 85°C at the operation temperature lower than 500°C, and thermally sustainable operation could be achieved by heat recovery at this range.
