Thermal coupling of SOFC is desirable for improved energy efficiency. This might be achieved with the use of metal hydrides with operating characteristics tuned with those of SOFC. In this respect IT SOFCs offer better possibilities since their temperature range is quite moderate and suitable for a range of hydrides.
In this study, a target temperature in the range 550-650 C is selected and a study was carried out to determine metal hydrides that would function at this temperature range. The study follows a combinatorial approach where ternary alloys were deposited over a wide compositional range, screened for their sorption properties via resistivity measurement . We illustrate the use of combinatorial method within this context and finally give results for ternary system for Ti-Nb-Fe.
