The IDEAL-Cell concept is based on the junction between a PCFC anode/electrolyte section and a SOFC cathode/electrolyte section, through a mixed proton and oxide ion conducting porous ceramic membrane, operating in the temperature range 600-700°C. Recombination of ions takes place within the junction, or central membrane (CM), and water vapor is evacuated through open porosity. The first results on the fabrication of multilayered samples reproducing the IDEAL-Cell structure are reported here, together with electrochemical tests carried out on selected samples in order to evaluate the performances of the chosen materials and to demonstrate the feasibility of this innovative concept of fuel cell.

Abstract

The IDEAL-Cell concept is based on the junction between a PCFC anode/electrolyte section and a SOFC cathode/electrolyte section, through a mixed proton and oxide ion conducting porous ceramic membrane, operating in the temperature range 600-700°C. Recombination of ions takes place within the junction, or central membrane (CM), and water vapor is evacuated through open porosity. The first results on the fabrication of multilayered samples reproducing the IDEAL-Cell structure are reported here, together with electrochemical tests carried out on selected samples in order to evaluate the performances of the chosen materials and to demonstrate the feasibility of this innovative concept of fuel cell.
