The efficiency of a combination reformer/fuel cell system is significantly improved by recapturing the energy value of heat generated in the fuel cell and producing additional power. The cooling water from the fuel cell is mixed, entirely or in part, with sufficient or excess compressed air, and at least partially evaporates in the compressed air. The air is at least sufficient to support the oxidative reactions in the fuel cell and also to serve as oxidant in a burner that provides heat to reform fuel/steam mixtures into hydrogen-containing reformate. T...


1. A method for increasing the efficiency of a system comprising a fuel reformer coupled to a fuel cell, the method comprising the steps of:providing pressurized air; using heat generated by the fuel cell to make a pressurized air/steam mixture, optionally in admixture with water, by direct evaporation of cooling water from the fuel cell into the pressurized air; introducing the air/steam mixture as an oxidant into a fuel burner; producing a steam-containing exhaust having an expansion potential from the fuel burner; driving an expander using the expansi...
