RAMSES – Robust Advanced Materials for Metal Support SOFC

RAMSES – Robust Advanced Materials for Metal Support SOFC

The RAMSES project will provide the Fuel Cell community with an innovative high performance, robust, durable and cost-effective Solid Oxide Fuel Cell owing to the Metal Supported Cell (MSC) concept i.e. a cell design consisting of thin ceramic electrodes and electrolyte layers deposited on a porous metallic substrate for the mechanical support of the cell. Both planar and tubular cells will be developed.

SINTEF’s tasks:

Material development of materials for metal supported SOFC.

The work involves:

  • Development of versatile production methods suitable to prepare porous metal substrates from metal powders
  • Development of protective coating layers for the metal supports with improved tolerance to oxidation and chromium retention
  • Deposition of the substrate side electrode (cathode/anode), including the possibility of co-sintering the porous metal substrate with the electrode, possibly with intermediate barrier layers.
  • Dense and thin electrolytes using low temperature routes
