A molten carbonate fuel cell power plant is disclosed. The power plant of the present invention includes an insulated enclosure and a fuel cell stack, a sensible heat reformer, fuel stream and air stream recycle loops and a catalytic burner, each within the enclosure. The molten carbonate fuel cell power plant of the present invention is compact, easily transportable and provides cost and efficiency improvements over conventional molten carbonate fuel cell power plants.
A molten carbonate fuel cell power plant, comprising: a thermally insulating enclosure: molten carbonate fuel cell means, disposed within the enclosure, for electrochemically reacting a fuel stream and an oxidant stream to generate an electrical current, heat, an anode exhaust stream and a cathode exhaust stream; reformer means for endothermically converting a hydrocarbon fuel stream to a hydrogen fuel stream, said reformer means being separate from said fuel cell means and disposed within said enclosure so that heat generated by the fuel cell means is t...
