The bootstrap start-up system (42) achieves an efficient start-up of the power plant (10) that minimizes formation of soot within a reformed hydrogen rich fuel. A burner (48) receives un-reformed fuel directly from the fuel supply (30) and combusts the fuel to heat cathode air which then heats an electrolyte (24) within the fuel cell (12). A dilute hydrogen forming gas (68) cycles through a sealed heat-cycling loop (66) to transfer heat and generated steam from an anode side (32) of the electrolyte (24) through fuel processing system (36) components (38,...
1. A solid oxide fuel cell power plant, comprising: at least one solid oxide fuel cell having: an electrolyte;a cathode flow field configured to direct an oxidant reactant flow adjacent to a cathode electrode side of the electrolyte; andan anode flow field configured to direct a reducing fuel flow adjacent to an anode electrode side of the electrolyte;a fuel supply;a fuel processing system in fluid communication with the fuel supply and the anode flow field, the fuel processing system configured to process a hydrogen-rich fuel;a bootstrap start-up system...
