Impact

The demonstration of triode architectures is expected to enhance SOFC power output and overall thermodynamic efficiency and primarily to offer a unique tool for controlling the rate of carbon deposition and poisoning by fuel impurities. A synergetic phenomenon, which will combine the advanced characteristics of modified Ni-based cermet and triode cell design should therefore significantly improve efficiency in direct hydrocarbon SOFCs and reduce deactivation rates, thus enabling reliable operation even at substantially lower temperatures with a wide range of usable fuels.
