Title (EN) FUEL CELL SYSTEM WITH PARTIAL RECYCLING OF ANODE EXHAUST
(FR) SYSTEME DE PILE A COMBUSTIBLE A RECYCLAGE PARTIEL DE L'ECHAPPEMENT COTE ANODE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method of operating a fuel cell system includes providing a fuel inlet stream into a fuel cell stack, operating the fuel cell stack to generate electricity and a hydrogen containing fuel exhaust stream having a temperature above 200 C, lowering a temperature of the fuel exhaust stream to 200 C or less, separating the fuel exhaust stream into a first separated fuel exhaust stream and a second separated fuel exhaust stream, and recycling the first separated fuel exhaust stream into the fuel inlet stream.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un procédé de fonctionnement d'un système de pile à combustible qui consiste à générer un courant d'admission de combustible dans un empilement de piles à combustible, activer l'empilement de piles à combustible pour générer de l'électricité et un courant d'échappement de combustible contenant de l'hydrogène à une température supérieure à 200 °C, faire baisser la température du courant d'échappement du combustible à 200 °C ou en dessous, séparer le premier courant de combustible en un premier courant d'échappement et en un second courant d'échappement de combustible et recycler le premier courant de combustible séparé en courant d'admission de combustible.
