Critical subsystems and components representing elements of a 15- kilowatt partial-oxidation molten carbonate fuel cell power generating system were designed, fabricated and tested to establish overall feasibility of the 15- kilowatt design. Testing was carried out generally at the 1-kilowatt size. The elements tested were the fuel cell module or stack, partial-oxidation fuel preparation subsystem including fuel vaporization using combat gasoline and CITE fuel, startup burner on both fuels, corrosive removal from the fuel gas stream, and the spent fuel recycle blower. Results of testing these units indicate that the design concept is feasible and attainable.
