In a method of operating a solid electrolyte fuel cell using a light hydrocarbon such as a natural gas, naphtha or the like as the fuel oxygen-enriched air is passed to the air electrode side and a fuel prepared by steam reformation of a hydrocarbon to the fuel electrode side and the fuel is recycled. The results are improved performance in that the method offers a high output density and entails no loss of fuel.
A method of operating a solid electrolyte fuel cell including a plurality of cells each comprising either a porous support adapted to provide a cell with structural integrity and serially superimposed thereon an air electrode, an electrolyte and a fuel electrode in the order mentioned or a porous air electrode which doubles as a support and serially superimposed thereon an electrolyte and a fuel electrode in the order mentioned, comprising supplying oxygen-enriched air to said air electrode, preparing a fuel by steam reformation of a hydrocarbon followed...
