Abstract
To improve the cathode performance in molten carbonate fuel cells (MCFCs), Lanthanum Strontium Cobalt Ferrite (La0.6Sr0.4Co0.2Fe0.8O3, LSCF) of perovskite structure was coated on a porous Ni plate by a vacuum suction method. The electrochemical performance of modified cathode was examined and compared with that of uncoated conventional cathode via single cell operation and electrochemical impedance analysis (EIS). The cell voltage of the single cell using the LSCF coated cathode, measured at 650 ℃ with current density of 150 mA/㎠ is 0.837 V and it is higher than that of the cell with uncoated conventional cathode, 0.805 V. The higher performance and the lower charge transfer resistance were obtained at 600e700 ℃ after LSCF coating. The lower activation energy of oxygen reduction reaction was also obtained. The lower activation energy of oxygen reduction reaction after LSCF coating shows that LSCF on lithiated NiO cathode plays a role of catalyst on the oxygen reduction reaction in cathode.
