Abstract:

The feasibility of a man-portable, 500 watt, indirect liquid hydrocarbon and air, fuel cell powerplant was established. Two independent units were developed - a Hydrogen Generator Assembly and a Fuel Cell Assembly. The Hydrogen Generator Assembly converts the hydrocarbon fuel to hydrogen by steam reforming, and the Fuel Cell Assembly electrochemically oxidizes the hydrogen with air to produce electrical energy. The two units are integrated for operation and designed to produce 500 watts of net electrical power. Author
