Abstract

Molten Carbonate Fuel Cells (MCFCs) can be used as CO2 separators in fossil fuel power plants. Fossil fuel power plants emit flu gases with SO2 contaminants, thus the influence of SO2 on the operation of MCFC is investigated both experimentally and theoretically. The influence of SO2 contaminants (up 680 ppm) on MCFC performance was examined. The experimental investigation revealed there is a boundary limit where SO2 contamination could increase the MCFC voltage.
