A hybrid fuel cell system having a fuel cell and a heat engine having an expansion cycle and a compressor cycle and which is further adapted to include a bypass assembly for segmenting expanded oxidant supply gas from the expansion cycle of the heat engine into a first expanded oxidant supply gas portion and a second expanded gas portion and in which the first expanded oxidant supply gas portion is used for the fuel cell and the second expanded gas portion bypassed around the fuel cell.
1. A hybrid fuel cell system comprising:a fuel cell having an anode section and a cathode section; a heat engine having a compressor cycle and an expansion cycle, said compressor cycle compressing oxidant supply gas; a heat recovery unit responsive to exhaust gas from the cathode section of said fuel cell, said heat recovery unit supplying heat to said compressed oxidant supply gas; the heated compressed oxidant supply gas being expanded in the expansion cycle of said heat engine to provide an expanded oxidant supply gas and produce mechanical energy for...
