Presentation Title:

Integrated Fuel Cell Systems for Multi-Generation Purposes


Interest has increased recently in fuel cell applications for both stationary and mobile power generation, motivated largely by their potential role in reducing emissions and increasing overall system efficiencies, even in small-scale installations. Furthermore, integrated fuel cell systems have received more attention in various sectors, ranging from industrial to residential applications, especially for co- and tri-generation purposes. There are essentially multiple issues as there is a strong need to address for practical applications, such as efficiency, cost, resources, environment and sustainability. This presentation focuses on various integrated fuel cell energy systems (including SOFC, MCFC and PEMFC) for multi generation purposes, including power, heat, cooling, hot water, hydrogen, desalination, etc. It also discusses various projects and applications under case studies. The research findings show that such systems address the crucial issues by providing better efficiency, better cost effectiveness, better resources use, better environment and better sustainability.
