Doping different cations into the B-sites of perovskite oxides is often used to increase the concentration of oxygen vacancy (Vo••), further enhancing their electrocatalytic activity. In this work, Pr0.4Sr0.5Co0.45Fe0.45Mo0.1O3 (PSCFM11), Pr0.4Sr0.5Co0.2Fe0.7Mo0.1O3 (PSCFM27), and Pr0.4Sr0.5Ni0.2Fe0.7Mo0.1O3 (PSNFM27) are synthesized and used as semiconductor materials for the reversible single-component cell (RSCC). In the hydrogen electrode side of the cell, PSCFM11, PSCFM27, and PSNFM27 can be reduced and in situ precipitate Co–Fe alloy and Ni–Fe alloy, and the reduced PSNFM27 exhibits the highest concentration of Vo••. The single-component fuel cell (SCFC) composed of PSNFM27 and reduced PSNFM27 shows the best cell performance, and the maximum power density is 328.6 mW cm–2 at 700 °C, indicating the higher concentration of Vo•• and the higher catalytic activity toward the hydrogen oxidation reaction (HOR). In addition, the RSCC composed of PSNFM27 and reduced PSNFM27 shows the best discharge and water electrolysis performance. The maximum power density of the RSCC can reach 315.3 mW cm–2, and the electrolysis current density at 1.3V is −612.7 mA cm–2 at 700 °C.
