Integrerad Design av Bränsle cell och Mikro Gas Turbin (Swedish)
This work represents the integration of a hybrid system based on Micro Gas Turbine system available at the division of Heat and Power Technology at KTH and Solid Oxide Fuel Cell. The MGT available is an externally fired recuperated and the SOFC is of planar type. Before the integration, these two different candidates of environmentally friendly power generation systems are discussed separately. The advantages and performances of the two separate systems are presented. The operation conditions as pressure and temperature are fixed at different stations based on the previous experiments. Keeping the parameters constant a reduction of fuel to the combustor could be achieved. Finally, layout of the hybrid system diagram is suggested and orientation of a computer designed layout is also presented. An efficiency of 65% from SOFC has been achieved and reductions of the fuel by more than 50% to the MGT are noteworthy.
