Abstract

Electrochemical regulation of hydrogen partial pressure in flowing gas was examined using a proton-conducting ceramic tube made of Yb-doped SrCeO3. Hydrogen partial pressure in the test gas was controlled by electrochemical hydrogen pump. When pumping current was controlled based on the Faraday's law, hydrogen content in the test gas with a constant flow-rate was well regulated, while change in flow-rate of the gas caused some deviation of hydrogen partial pressure from that desired. The pumping current could be determined in a self-correcting manner, which was efficient to regulate gas even with changes in flow-rate and/or initial hydrogen content in the gas.
