Abstract:

Fuel Cell Power Unit conceptual designs and costbenefit analyses were accomplished for six U.S. Air Force applications. The applications included two attended remote sites, two unattended remote sites and two tacticalmobile requirements. The electrical power ratings of these designs ranged from 23kW to 100kW. Fuels considered included diesel, Jet Fuel JP-4 and methanol. Life cycle cost and benefit analyses showed that significant savings and operational improvements could be realized with the introduction of fuel cells into the USAF power generation inventory.
