SOFC systems have the potential to achieve higher efficiency even on a small scale. Moreover, SOFC systems are a cleaner system that emits less atmosphere polluting NOx and SOx. However the installation cost of SOFC systems is very expensive. A micro gas turbine has an advantage of relatively low installation cost and compactness. Due to the synergistic effects and the reducing installation cost, a solid oxide fuel cell and gas turbine (SOFC/GT) hybrid system has been considered as competitive in the market of distributed/residential power supply. The purpose of this study is to show the work on part-load operation of a hybrid system based on a solid oxide fuel cell and a gas turbine (SOFC/GT). The system consists of SOFC stack, pre-reformer, compressor, turbine, combustor and Recuperator. For evaluation a process simulation tool, ASPEN PLUS £¿, was used and completed with a user model and Calculator block representing a SOFC component of tubular design. A SOFC/GT system, in size of around 220kW, with methane as fuel, was analySzed. Three typical operation modes for the part-load performance of the SOFC/GT hybrid system, i.e., constant speed, variable speed and variable IGV(Inlet Guide Vane) angle operation are considered. It is found that the variable speed mode is more advantageous under part-load condition. Operating under this mode, the LHV (Low Heating Value) efficiency can be maintained over 60% in the power out put range from 45% to 100%. * Note: The text above is the abstract of the thesis.
