Novel three-layered intermediate temperature solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) electrolytes based on gadolinium doped ceria (GDC) are developed to suppress the electronic conductivity of GDC, to improve the mechanical properties of the cell and to minimize power loss due to mixed conductive nature of GDC. Three different electrolytes are fabricated by sandwiching thin YSZ. ScSZ and ScCeSZ between two relatively thick GDC layers. An electrolyte composed of pure GDC is also manufactured for comparison. NiO/GDC and LSCF/GDC electrodes are then coated on the electrolytes by a screen printing route. SEM results show that it is possible to obtain dense and crack free thin layers of YSZ, ScSZ and ScCeSZ between two GDC layers without delamination. Performance measurements indicate that interlayered thin electrolytes act as an electronic conduction barrier and improve open circuit voltages (OCVs) of GDC based cells.

Siyahjani, Shirin; Oner, Saliha; Diker, Halide; GÜLTEKİN, BURAK; Varlikli, Canan (Elsevier BV, 2020-08-01)
In this study, we report the effect of etheric substituents in imidazolium and ammonium based ionic liquids (IL) on the performance of electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLC) consisted of gel polymer electrolyte (GPE) and reduced graphene oxide (RGO) electrode. GPEs contain poly (vinylidene fluoride-hexafluompropylene) (PVDF-HFP) and the ILs. Ammonium and imidazolium based ionic liquids (ILs) differ by their length of etheric groups and etheric group contents, respectively. According to the cyclic vo...

Budak, Yagmur; DEVRİM, YILSER (Wiley, 2020-10-01)
In this study, it is aimed to meet the annual electricity and heating needs of a house without interruption with the photovoltaic panel, wind turbine, methanol electrolyzer, and high temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cell system. The system results show that the use of the 2 WT with 18 PV was enough to provide the need of the methanol electrolyzer, which provides requirements of the high temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cell. The produced heat by the fuel cell was used to meet the heat requ...
Experimental investigation of CO tolerance in high temperature PEM fuel cells
DEVRİM, YILSER; Albostan, Ayhan; Devrim, Huseyin (Elsevier BV, 2018-10-04)
In the present work, the effect of operating a high temperature proton exchange membrane fuel cell (HT-PEMFC) with different reactant gases has been investigated throughout performance tests. Also, the effects of temperature on the performance of a HT-PEMFC were analyzed at varying temperatures, ranging from 140 degrees C to 200 degrees C. Increasing the operating temperature of the cell increases the performance of the HT-PEMFC. The optimum operating temperature was determined to be 160 degrees C due to th...
Effective factors improving catalyst layers of PEM fuel cell
Avcioglu, Gokce S.; FIÇICILAR, BERKER; Eroğlu, İnci (Elsevier BV, 2018-06-07)
Cathode catalyst layer has an important role on water management across the membrane electrode assembly (MEA). Effect of Pt percentage in commercial catalyst and Pt loading from the viewpoint of activity and water management on performance was investigated. Physical and electrochemical characteristics of conventional and hydrophobic catalyst layers were compared. Performance results revealed that power density of conventional catalyst layers (CLs) increased from 0.28 to 0.64 W/cm(2) at 0.45 V with the incre...
Mo doping of layered Li (NixMnyCo1-x-y-zMz)O-2 cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries
PİŞKİN, BERKE; Uygur, Cansu Savas; Aydınol, Mehmet Kadri (Wiley, 2018-10-10)
We systematically investigated the effects of Mo doping on the structure, morphology, and the electrochemical performance of Li (NixMnyCo1-x-y-zMz)O-2 (NMC) cathode materials for Li-ion batteries. Layered NMC cathodes were synthesized with the ratio of 111, 622, and 226 via spray pyrolysis yielding submicron-sized aggregates in the shape of hollow spherical particles. We performed X-ray diffraction analyses to determine the present phases and the ordering in structure. X-ray diffraction pattern of Mo-doped ...
