Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) are being developed to operate on syngas derived from coal in FutureGen power plants. Coal derived syngas presents different technical challenges for SOFCs compared to reformate obtained from fossil fuels such as diesel and natural gas. Such reformate gas compositions are typically tailored to include specific amounts of methane to enable cooling SOFCs by a partial internal reforming endothermic reaction. The endothermic cooling is not available when using coal derived syngas, this requires a more resilient stack with respect to thermal stress management; consequently, applications are sought for the development and characterization of an electrical contact zone material capable of relieving stress at the cathode and interconnect contact interfaces. The contact zone material will have a formulation or sintering aid additive that will allow fracture surfaces induced by thermo-mechanical stresses during a cooling cycle to re-sinter (self-heal) during a subsequent heat-up to SOFC operational temperatures (650 degrees C to 800 degrees C). Selected materials must be compatible with SOFC power systems and materials, and must sustain operating performance for greater than 40,000 hours and hundreds of thermal cycles for stationary applications. Lifetime effects (phase stability, thermal expansion compatibility, element migration, conductivity and aging) must be addressed and characterized to the extent possible. For any new material set, cost, manufacturability and reliability are critical factors in meeting the goals of the Solid State Energy Conversion Alliance (SECA) Program.
