Abstract

A solid oxide fuel cell was developed with BaZr(0.7)Pr(0.1)Y(0.2)O(3-delta), a proton-conducting electrolyte showing high conductivity, and good sinterability and chemical stability. A maximum power density of 163 mW cm(-1) at 600 degrees C was achieved combining BZPY10 with tailored electrodes; a composite anode promoting the electrolyte densification, and a composite cathode made of two mixed conductors.
