Using SDC (Samaria doped Ceria) electrolytes, the OCV (open circuit voltage) is only 0.8 V and lower than Nernst voltage 1.15V at 1073K. Low OCV has been explained by the theory of transport equations. Even if there is no external current,there are internal ionic (Ii) and electronic currents (Ie). Here, the sum of Ii and Ie is zero. By ohmic loss caused by Ii, OCV becomes lower than Nernst voltage. But no one can measure internal currents, even the predicted currents are over several A and they are too large.
