This paper presents a dynamic model of SOFC and the response of the fuel cell for sudden load changes. Slow response of the fuel cell prevents it from following the load, Hence connection with the DC/DC buck-boost converter is required. The models are developed in PSCAD with and without a feedback control system. Power characteristics obtained in order to validate the need of the DC/DC converter which allows the SOFC system to be used for load following applications
