A power supply includes a fuel cell stack, a thermoelectric module and a burner module. The fuel cell stack generates a primary source of electricity and secondary source of heat. The thermoelectric module generates a secondary source of electricity. The burner module is juxtaposed to the fuel cell stack and the thermoelectric module, to provide primary heat to the system and to generate a temperature differential across the thermoelectric module, and to pre-heat a fuel and an oxidant for the fuel cell stack. The burner module is regulated to maintain a ...
[ We claim:] [1.] A method of generating heat and electrical energy, comprising the steps ofsupplying a first fuel to a burner for generating a temperature differential across a thermoelectric element generating electricity for secondary power, and for pre-heating a second fuel, said pre-heating comprising primary heat,supplying said second fuel to a fuel cell stack for generating electricity for primary power and secondary heat.
