Air-Independent solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) systems are primarily used in naval applications. In this study a decomposed hydrogen peroxide (H2 O2 ) stream is used as the oxidant. The fully decomposed diluted H2 O2 oxidant stream contains 20% O2 and 80% H2 O, and this water content is the basis for the studies performed. A computational model has been developed that couples local gas and charge transport with a detailed oxygen reduction mechanism and considers surface coverages in the presence of excess moisture. The model is used to study the detailed reaction mechanism and the performance of the cathode in the presence of a high water content oxidant stream.
