Description:

NOTE - Registration Requirements: As part of the
Department?s implementation of e-Government, WE ARE REQUIRING THE
SUBMISSION OF APPLICATIONS THROUGH GRANTS.GOV. There are several one-time
actions you must complete in order to submit an application through
Grants.gov (e.g., obtain a Dun and Bradstreet Data Universal Numbering
System (DUNS) number, register with the Central Contractor Registration
(CCR), register with the credential provider and register with
Grants.gov). You must complete all the one-time actions in ?Get Started?
at www.Grants.gov prior to submitting your initial application.
APPLICANTS, WHO ARE NOT REGISTERED WITH CCR AND GRANTS.GOV, SHOULD ALLOW
AT LEAST 14 DAYS TO COMPLETE THESE REQUIREMENTS. It is suggested that the
process be started as soon as possible.

Area of Interest 15 - SOFC Sealing Materials and Systems
Solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology has advanced considerably under
the Office of Fossil Energy Solid State Energy Conversion Alliance (SECA)
Program. SOFC power generation systems are being developed to operate on
syngas derived from coal in FutureGen power plants. Financial assistance
applications are sought to research and develop novel glass,
glass-ceramic, ceramic-filled glass composite, metal-filled glass
composite and/or ceramic-filled metal composite-based seal materials and
systems to address planar SOFC sealing needs. Of particular interest are
novel seal concepts focusing on seal material composition and structure
with an emphasis on attaining long-term durability under typical SOFC
operating conditions. Current SECA Program goals require a seal service
life of more than 40,000 hours and hundreds of thermal cycles for
stationary systems, or at least 5,000 hours and 3,000 thermal cycles for
transportation systems. Effective sealing concepts must perform under
high temperature, chemically reactive conditions and take into
consideration the thermal transient/gradient-induced stresses within the
seal, the seal-interconnect interface, the seal-cell interface and the
cell itself. Proposed approaches should combine analysis and
experimentation to establish theoretical limits, and to evaluate the
practical limit of the sealing concept.
