The power generation system and method of the present invention employ a solid oxide fuel cell which reforms fuel to a degree which is controlled by the amount of fuel introduced to the solid oxide fuel cell. The effluent is directed preferably through a heat exchanger and then into an engine. This hybrid system more efficiently produces energy, both mechanical and electrical, over conventional systems.


[ What is claimed is:] [1.]1. A power generation system, comprising:(a) at least one SOFC capable of reforming fuel, said SOFC having a fuel side and an air side;(b) a preheating device in fluid communication with said fuel side and said air side of said SOFC;(c) an air supply in fluid communication with said preheating device such that air can be heated in said preheating device and then introduced to said air side of said SOFC;(d) a fuel supply in fluid communication with said preheating device such that fuel can be burned, vaporized, atomized, or a co...
