Performance analysis of an anode-supported solid oxide fuel cell produced using high-pressure injection molding

2018 / 03 / 21

In a high ranked magazine International Journal of Hydrogen Energy (IF 3.647) there was published the article entitled Characterization of a circular 80 mm anode supported solid oxide fuel cell (AS-SOFC) with anode support produced using high-pressure injection molding (HPIM), written among others by researchers from the Institute of Power Engineering: Jakub Kupecki (PhD) from CPE and Ryszard Kluczowski (PhD), Mariusz Krauz (PhD), Michał Kawalec, from CEREL in Boguchwala.

The current study was oriented at analyzing the performance of an anode-supported solid oxide fuel cell produced using high-pressure injection molding. The cell with a total thickness of 550 μm was produced in the Ceramic Department (CEREL) of the Institute of Power Engineering in Poland and experimentally analyzed in the Energy Department (DENERG) of Politecnico di Torino in Italy. The high-pressure injection molding technique was applied to produce a 500 μm thick anode support NiO/8YSZ 66/34 wt% with porosity of 25 vol%.

The experimental characterization was done at two temperature levels: 750 and 800 °C under fixed anodic and cathodic flow and compositions. The preliminary studies on the application of high-pressure injection molding are discussed together with the advantages of the technology. The performance of two generations of anode-supported cells is compared with data of reference cells with supports obtained using tape casting.
