A mathematical model is presented for a high temperature H2S electrolyzer. It is shown that the maximum current in this type of a cell is determined entirely by the transport rate of sulfide ions through the separator. It is suggested that this model could be used to determine the feasibility of various designs for this electrolyzer.
