An electrochemical converter is disposed within a pressure vessel that collects hot exhaust gases generated by the converter for delivery to a cogeneration bottoming device, such as a gas turbine. The bottoming device extracts energy from the waste heat generated by the converter, such as a fuel cell for the generation of electricity, yielding an improved efficiency energy system. Bottoming devices can include, for example, a gas turbine system or an heating, ventilation or cooling (HVAC) system. The pressure vessel can include a heat exchanger, such as ...
[ Having described the invention, what is claimed as new and desired to be secured by Letters Patent is:] [48.] An electrochemical converter power system, comprisingan electrochemical converter adapted for receiving input reactants,a pressure vessel disposed about and in thermal communication with said converter, said electrochemical converter venting exhaust gases comprising spent input reactants to the interior of said pressure vessel,a heat exchanging element coupled to said pressure vessel for exchanging heat therewith, said heat exchanging element a...
