Decomposed hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) contains excess moisture and stabilizers that can deteriorate SOFC performance and durability markedly in the cathode. A numerical study is performed for a strontium-doped lanthanum manganate and yttria stabilized zirconia (LSM-YSZ) composite cathode using an oxidant stream consisting of a 20% O2 and 80% H2O mixture to study the detailed reaction mechanism and local transport and polarization phenomena. Specifically the 1-D cathode model couples multi-component gas and charge transport with an oxygen reduction mechanism. The model is validated with data from the literature and used to study the transport effect only of H2O in the cathode. Future work will consider the effect of H2O on the electrochemical reaction mechanism.
