A Solid Oxide Regenerative Fuel Cell (SORFC) system stores waste heat from the fuel cell in a heat storage material during the discharge mode. The heat is then used to heat water to be electrolyzed during the charge mode.
1. A fuel cell system, comprising:a regenerative fuel cell; anda heat storage material which is adapted to store waste heat from the fuel cell during discharge mode and which is adapted to heat water provided into the fuel cell for electrolyzation during charge mode, wherein the heat storage material melts to store heat or desorbs a gas to store heat. 2. The system of claim 1, wherein the fuel cell comprises a SORFC and the material is adapted to vaporize liquid water during the charge mode. 3. The system of claim 2, wherein the material comprises a gas ...
