Grahic Jump Location
Compressor and turbine isentropic efficiencies and recuperator effectiveness for the gas turbine cycle at partial load (constant TIT operation)
Grahic Jump Location
Tubular SOFC module configuration: spent fuel is partially recirculated and the exhaust gases of the auxiliary combustion are used to preheat the inlet air flow
Grahic Jump Location
The recuperative SOFC+GT cycle at design conditions; components assumptions as from Tables 1 and 2
Grahic Jump Location
Partial load performances of the SOFC+GT cycle. The cell current density is reduced according to Eq. (5), with lower limit at 100 mA/cm2 .
Grahic Jump Location
SOFC+GT plant power distribution and heat production as a function of the load, for constant TIT operation
Grahic Jump Location
Effects of ambient temperature on power output (dashed line) and cycle efficiency (solid line); the TIT is set to 900°C and each group of four lines is traced for 48,000, 67,000, 75,000, and 85,000 rpm
