A molten carbonate fuel cell stack with an active area of 240 mm×140 mm consisted of 30 cells.The gas feed system works via interior manifolds,and the stack placed in a couple of self-chest,coupled with a heater at the bottom and other fours surrounded,to keep uniformity of temperature.Under ambient pressure and 650 ℃,fed with hydrogen and air as anode and cathode gases respectively,the stack gave a current density of 150 mA/cm 2 at an average cell voltage of 0.7 V.The peak output of the stack was 1.06 kW during its performance of 300 h.
