Abstract: Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) offer numerous advantages in terms of high efficiency and clean electrochemcial energy conversion devices. However, owing to high operation temperature, this technology is restricted to stationary applications and leads to components degradation and long-term stability issues. The development of new design and their modifications for improving the electrochemical performance at intermediate temperatures and durability of the SOFC components are very important to bring this technology one step closer to the market. In this context, the current research on the development, properties, performance, and stability of geometrically modified flat-tubular (FT) SOFC cell and the stack is reviewed in detail. This advanced design exhibits higher performance compared to the tubular type and longer stability in comparison to the planar type SOFCs. The application of the interconnect material is emerging as the key factor influencing the electrical output of the FT-SOFC and operation at high temperatures and current density are the critical issues for cell durability. New stack designs are discussed in detail and experimental findings are summarized.
