Abstract

Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) has operated solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) at 0.5 2 kW scales, on high sulfur JP-8, for over 1000 hours. A standalone 1 kW generator prototype has been demonstrated. It is based on unique PCI innovations relating to sulfur cleanup, fuel reformation, hybrid burners, stack selection and integration. PCI proposes to build on this experience to develop and demonstrate a 1.2 kWe logistic fueled, SOFC generator. During Phase I a MIL-SPEC compliant design with a clearly articulated path to meeting the topics weight and fuel consumption requirements of
