Abstract

Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are the most flexible fuel cells, and internal reforming and/or simple external reforming may be possible. In this chapter, the multifuel capability of SOFCs is considered from both thermochemical and kinetic viewpoints. Equilibria in various possible SOFC fuel gases are examined. Power generation characteristics for various types of fuels are described. Extrinsic degradation affected by fuel impurities and intrinsic degradation during long-term and cycle operation are also described and discussed.
