Abstract

SOFC can directly utilize not only hydrogen but also various fuels such as city gas, kerosene, and others by internal reforming reaction on anodes. However, impurities and un-reformed hydrocarbon in fuels can cause degradation associated with carbon deposition. In this study, in-plane distribution of carbon deposition was evaluated using planar cells with an electrode area of 4 cm by 4 cm. The 2-dimensional distribution of deposited carbon has been visualized, where the carbon deposition was accelerated in the coexistence of C3H8 and H2S as minor constituents in simulated prereformed CH4-based fuels.
