Title: Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Gas Turbine Hybrids for Distributed Generation

Abstract

Given the need for clean and reliable energy, fuel cell technologies offer the ability to produce extremely low-emission electricity from reliable fossil energy. A standalone solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) module can reach electrical efficiencies of about 60%. However, coupling a SOFC to a Brayton style gas turbine (GT) increases the efficiency of the system to 70-75% or more. Using results from NETL’s HYPER Lab and published research, this project evaluates the strengths, limitations, and potential applications of SOFC-GT hybrids.
