Abstract

NOVELTY - The end plate is made of material whose thermal expansion coefficient is corresponding to that of material of a cell (103). The thermal expansion coefficient of material is 9asterisk10-6 K-1 to 14asterisk10-6 K11. The thickness of the end plate is within the range of 0.001-1 mm and 0.05-0.3 mm.

USE - End plate for solid oxide fuel cell stack (claimed). Can also be used in polymer electrolyte fuel cell stack and direct methanol fuel cell stack.

ADVANTAGE - The robustness of the end plate is improved. The structure of the end plate is simplified. The risk of delamination of the stack is reduced.
