    High SOFC operating temperature allows direct internal reforming (DIR) of methane within the SOFC anode. However, carbon formation reduces considerably the performance and durability of the cells. A key step towards improving SOFC performance is to understand the detailed surface kinetics and electrochemistry for DIR of methane at the triple phase boundaries (TPBs) in SOFC anodes. In this study, we have performed kinetic simulations with a numerical model on Ni pattern anode, combined with surface reactions, charge transfer reactions, and diffusions for DIR of methane. The I-V characteristics of SOFC near TPBs are discussed.
