An internal reforming fuel cell system wherein the reforming reaction in the cell absorbs heat from the electrochemical reaction in the cell in an amount to substantially maintain the cell at a predetermined temperature and without the need for additional cooling considerations. The excess fuel process gas from the cell is utilized such that the net utilization of the process gas of the fuel cell and utilization device exceeds about 50%.
A system comprising: a high temperature fuel cell including: an anode passage comprising an anode electrode, said anode passage being adapted to receive fuel process gas; a cathode passage comprising a cathode electrode, said cathode passage being adapted to receive an oxidant process gas; an electrolyte in communication with said anode and cathode electrodes; catalyst means in said fuel cell for reforming hydrocarbon fuel from a fuel supply to produce fuel process gas including hydrogen for said anode passage; the fuel process gas and the oxidant proces...
