Abstract: Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) with electrical efficiencies above 50 % are considered as very promising option for future decentralized energy conversion. At the Forschungszentrum Juelich (FZJ) planar SOFC stacks are currently being developed and tested at 800°C and up to 10000 h using H2 and methane as fuel. Stacks in the kW class routinely reach power densities of 700 W/cm². Typically the layered material composite of the FZJ-stack consists of cells with yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) electrolyte, Ni-YSZ a…
