A propulsion system for a vehicle having pairs of front and rear wheels and a fuel tank. An electrically driven motor having an output shaft operatively connected to at least one of said pair of wheels is connected to a fuel cell having a positive electrode and a negative electrode separated by an electrolyte for producing dc power to operate the motor. A partial oxidation reformer is connected both to the fuel tank and to the fuel cell receives hydrogen-containing fuel from the fuel tank and water and air and for partially oxidizing and reforming the fu...
A propulsion system for a vehicle comprising a fuel cell having a positive electrode and a negative electrode separated by an electrolyte, means for delivering a source of oxygen to the positive electrode of said fuel cell, means for partially oxidizing and reforming hydrogen-containing fuel with water and air in an overall exothermic reaction to provide sufficient energy from the exothermic partial reaction to initiate and sustain the endothermic reformation reaction to produce a hydrogen-containing gas without an external thermal energy input, and mean...
