Hybrid fuel-cell–gas-turbine (FC/GT) systems are technologically advanced systems that are promising for electric power generation with ultralow emissions and high efficiency for a large range of power plant sizes. A good understanding of the steady-state and dynamic performance of a FC/GT system is needed in order to develop and advance this hybrid technology. In this work, a detailed dynamic model of a solid oxide fuel cell/gas turbine (SOFC/GT) system has been developed. The system that is simulated represents the 220kW SOFC/GT hybrid system developed by Siemens Westinghouse. Results of the dynamic model and experimental data gathered during the operation and testing of the 220kW SOFC/GT at the National Fuel Cell Research Center are compared and presented.
