Integrated planar solid oxide fuel cell (IP-SOFC) with multilayered structure has been fabricated via direct-writing process named robo-dispensing. Partially stabilized zirconia (PSZ) substrate with sufficient mechanical strength and gas permeability was utilized as a support for SOFC. The 2-cells serially integrated planar SOFC in which each cell is composed of the line-shaped electrode and electrolyte was produced The SOFC component paste materials were dispensed through cylindrical nozzle of 0.21 mm in diameter onto a moving plate that was controlled by robo-dispensing machine. The thicknesses of anode, electrolyte and cathode were 30 μm, 15 μm and 20 μm, respectively. The fabricated IP-SOFC exhibited OCV of 1.82 V and maximum power density of 35 mW.
