  17. 17. Remedies for the problems (1) Increase the choices for materials selection (3) Lower the degradation of materials, cost and increase the durability Lowering of operating temperature will also increase the resistance of the cell and reduces the overall output. So, there is need to develop new material s . THAPAR UNIVERSITY, PATIALA 17 Wednesday, December 11, Copyright 2013-2014 Lowering of operating temperature (2)
  18. 18. Motivation of the present work  The best known solid electrolytes for SOFC are ceramics with fluorite type structure, materials based on zirconia and ceria. But its conductivity falls down drastically below 800 C. The major drawback associated with ceria based electrolytes is the conversion of Ce4+ to Ce3+ under SOFC anodic conditions (reducing atmosphere). This results in high electronic conduction and chemical expansion  One class of materials that exhibits high oxide ion conductivity is based upon the perovskite structure. Sr2+ doped LaInO3, LaYO3, LaGaO3 have been exploited as S/cm.  Depending upon the above stated facts we have chosen Bi1-xCaxYO3 (x=0, 0.1) to study its structural, thermal and electrical properties as electrolyte for SOFC applications.

  24. 24. ConclusionS  Rietveld refinement confirms that samples are single phase and exhibit pm-3m symmetry.  The thermogravimetric analysis shows that samples exhibit weight loss at high temperatures due to the creation of oxygen vacancies and bismuth vitalization.  The TEC and conductivity shows two different slopes one be due to the increase in oxygen vacancy concentration and hence increase in mobility of defects at high temperatures.
