Fuel Cell Power Plant Initiative. Volume II: Preliminary Design of a Fixed-Base LFP/SOFC Power System
WESTINGHOUSE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY CENTER PITTSBURGH PA
Pagination or Media Count:
This report documents the preliminary design for a military fixed-base power system of 3 MWe nominal capacity using Westinghouses tubular Solid Oxide Fuel Cell SOFC and Haldor Topsoes logistic fuels processor LFP. The LFP provides to the fuel cell a methane rich sulfur free fuel stream derived from either DF-2 diesel fuel, or JP-8 turbine fuel. Fuel cells are electrochemical devices that directly convert the chemical energy contained in fuels such as hydrogen, natural gas, or coal gas into electricity at high efficiency with no intermediate heat engine or dynamo.
