Abstract:

Altex Technologies, a small business entity, and Pennsylvania State University (PSU), a research organization, have teamed up under this STTR program to develop the innovative Person Portable JP-8 Fueled Fuel Cell-Power Generator (PJF-Gen). The 500-1000 watts PJF-Gen system will be light and compact, the size of a lunch box, and will reliably operate on JP-8 with fast startup, allowing for individual users to carry it on them and utilize it in remote locations. This is achieved by using the commercially available high temperature PEM fuel cells and an innovative compact reforming method that reliably converts JP-8 to a reformate suitable for these fuel cells. Under the Phase I, analysis and testing will be used to develop and demonstrate the innovative PJF-Gen system design and packaging concepts. Tests will include both the innovative reforming method with actual JP-8 and fuel cell testing. These activities will provide the basis for building and demonstrating a prototype PJF-Gen under Phase II.
