Abstract : Power generation systems based on the Technology Management, Inc. (TMI) solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) are an optional modality for military applications requiring small scale, lightweight, compact sources of electrical power for extended missions. An example is a portable power generation system for battery recharging or replacement. Critical is the ability to insert this technology into existing military operations. This requires the ability to use military logistic fuel, preferably directly without pretreatment. Technology Management, Inc., has designed and is implementing a compact, integrated system using TMI's proprietary sulfur-tolerant planar solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) and steam reformer, integrated into a compact unit which converts military logistic fuel into power directly and does not require either fuel pre-processing systems or fuel pretreatment.
