Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Components

Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) are a type of fuel cell that use a solid oxide material as the electrolyte. SOFCs use a solid oxide electrolyte to conduct negative oxygen ions from the cathode to the anode. The electrochemical oxidation of the oxygen ions with hydrogen or carbon monoxide thus occurs on the anode side.

Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) operate at very high temperatures (500 - 1,000°C). At these temperatures, SOFCs do not require costly platinum catalyst, as is currently necessary for lower-temperature fuel cells such as Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFC), and are not vulnerable to carbon monoxide catalyst poisoning. However, vulnerability to sulfur poisoning has been widely observed and the sulfur must be removed before entering the cell through the use of adsorbent beds or other means.

SOFCs have a wide variety of applications from use as auxiliary power units in vehicles to stationary power generation with outputs from 100W to 2MW. Higher operating temperatures make SOFCs suitable candidates for application with heat engine energy recovery devices or combined heat and power, which increases overall fuel efficiency.
