By producing direct electricity from oxidizing fuel, solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are becoming more and more popular as a practical power production technique. This technology can be employed for large-scale power generation applications. Chemical energy in SOFCs is converted into electricity directly with an energy efficiency of more than 60%. These power generation technologies do not require a combustion process, making them environmentally friendly and green technology. Additionally, SOFCs are able to utilize electricity from industrial and domestic waste heat to increase energy conversion efficiency. This chapter focuses on SOFC's components, modeling, and its applications for heat and power generation. Additionally, it offers the key design variables needed to model SOFC's behavior.
