Abstract A single molten carbonate fuel cell (MCFC) with an effective areaof3 cm2 was designed and operated at 923 K. The celI was operated for 500 h using a standard gas compositions. Pre-sintered Ni-Cr (1 0 wt.%), insitu lithiated nickel oxide and an un-sintered tape oflithiwn alwninate were used as anode, cathode and electrolyte retention matrix respectively. The gas chamber and electrode holders were made up ofSS 316. Perforated Ni and SS were used as the current collectors for the anode and cathode respectively. The electrolyte employed was a eutectic mixture oflithiwn and potassiwn carbonate (62:38 moI.%), which is normally in a molten state at the cell operating temperature ofH2+ CO2(80:20) as fuel and 02 + CO2(67:33) as an oxidant. The performances ofthe single cell at various temperatures with different gas compositions were studied. Various parameters influencingtheperformance ofthesinglecell MCFCarediscussed.
