Abstract

Single chamber solid oxide fuel cells (SC-SOFCs) are promising for portable power applications because they are simpler than the conventional dual-chamber cells. SC-SOFCs based on the cell Ni/BaCe0.3Zr0.5Y 0.2O3-δ (BCZY)/Ba0.5Sr 0.5Co0.8Fe0.2O3-δ (BSCF) were investigated under gas mixtures of propane (C3H8), oxygen (O2), and helium (He) with different compositions. To enhance the fuel partial oxidation at low temperatures, a porous layer of Ru was added onto the anode surface. Two configurations, finger (with parallel electrodes) and sandwich (with electrodes on opposite sides of the pellets), were analyzed.
