      Using the SOFC module, when considering ohmic heating in such collector, the following settings must be made. From the Model Parameters tab of the SOFC Model panel, turn on Enable Volumetric Energy Source. In at least one zone, make the following settings: 1. Turn on the Solid or Fluid option from Source Terms 2. Select the Source Terms tab, open the Energy Source panel and click on the Edit of Energy 3. In this panel, set the Number of Energy Sources to 1 and specify the udf source::sofc. When performing this configuration, ohmic heating is taken into account in all zones. Note: It cannot be considered only in a particular zone.
