Abstract
InnovaTek proposes to develop a JP-8 fuel cell electrical generator built on a microchannel reactor design that provides a very low volume, light weight system. The objective of the Phase I work is to develop and demonstrate the feasibility of a processing configuration that converts JP-8 fuel to a hydrogen rich feed for a solid oxide fuel cell that produces 0.5 to 1 kW electrical power. Key components that will be designed to meet the Navy's performance objectives include a sulfur-tolerant catalyst, a micro-channel fuel reformer, a sulfur removal system, and an integrated solid oxide fuel cell. The system will be compact, lightweight, fuel efficient and capable of processing feeds that have significant sulfur content (~3,000 ppm) for at least 600 hours before maintenance is required.
