Performance Analysis Ofanode Materials For Solid Oxide Fuel Cell

  • Megha Verma,


A fuel cell is a technology that transfers chemical energy from an electrical reaction between oxygen and hydrogen to water. This represents a significant improvement on domestic combustion, coal-burning, and nuclear power stations, all of which produce harmful by-products. The technology of fuel cells is a promising way to supply energy for remote regions where public grid connectivity or where power transfer and wiring costs are enormous. Solid-oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are the most used fuel cells because they demonstrate durability, reliability in power generation and low emissions. A major and difficult task in the field of SOFC is the study of SOFC anodes. The anode material used in SOFC applications is demonstrated in this analysis. There is also a comprehensive discussion on the use of cermet-based oxide materials as anodes in SOFCs. A review of the research carried out over the past 5 years suggests that anode materials used in such cells may have an improved power generation efficiency.
