Ni-Fe-LaGaO3 Based Alloy Anode Cermet for Direct Hydrocarbon Type Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Using LaGaO3 Electrolyte
Cermet anode of NiFe(9:1)-La0.9Sr0.1Ga0.8Mg0.2O3 (LSGM) (90:10 weight ratio) was studied for direct CH4 fueled SOFC operating at intermediate temperature. In case of NiFe bimetal anode, power density of the cell decreased drastically after operation under CH4 feeding condition. On the other hand, mixing Sm doped CeO2, MgO, or LSGM is effective for improving the long term stability. The cell with NiFe-LSGM anode exhibited much stable power density under CH4 feeding condition. Deposition of coke was also studied by Raman spectroscopy and no coke deposition was observed after 15 h operation. Since the surface activity of this anode is high, power density was hardly dependent on PCH4.It was found that NiFe-LSGM10 shows a high tolerance against the coke deposition under CH4 feeding condition.
