Review on Ceramics for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

Authors(5) :-Koteswararao P., M. Buchi Suresh, B. N. Wanic, P. V. Bhaskara Rao, P. Varalakshimi

Solid oxide fuel cell is useful other than fuel cells due to its high efficiency, fuel flexibility, less pollution and less operating temperatures. Recent years more research going on development of ceramics for solid oxide fuel cells have resulted in considerable lowering of the operating temperatures from 1000 oC to below 800oC . This has been achieved by the introduction of alternative materials for the cell components with improved conductivity characteristics or by reducing the thickness of critical cell components. The paper summarizes and discusses the basic properties of solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) components (electrode materials and electrolyte) from the point of view of their essential functional parameters analyzed.
