One aspect of the invention relates to a clean power generation system in which an internal combustion engine is operated to produce shaft power and an exhaust stream. The exhaust stream is processed by a fuel cell. Fluctuations in power demand are met, at least in part, by increasing or decreasing power output from the fuel cell and/or power uptake or output from a power storage device. The engine can operate at a relatively constant rate, providing a steady exhaust stream, which facilitates pollution control and fuel cell operation. According to anothe...
The invention claimed is: 1. A method of operating a power generation system, comprising: operating a direct injection compression-ignition diesel-powered internal combustion engine in a low temperature combustion mode to drive an axle and produce an exhaust stream comprising CO; fueling a solid oxide fuel cell with at least the exhaust stream to produce electrical power, the fuel cell removing at least 50% of the CO from the exhaust stream storing electrical power produced by the fuel cell in an energy storage system; at times, driving the axle with an...
