    Abstract

    The solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) is recognized as one of high efficiency plants of electricity generation for a sustainable future system with low environmental impact. In term of fuel flexibility, SOFC is suitable for direct use of syngas from a coal gasification plant. The application of integrated SOFC in coal gasification based power plant, such as a light integrated gasification fuel cell (L-IGFC) power plant, could be one of the most promising coal energy conversions system providing high electrical efficiency with low CO2 emitted to the atmosphere. The system consists of a coal gasifier and SOFC module on the top of a steam turbine. The sensitivity analyses of major operating parameters were performed using the developed model. The results indicated that the L-IGFC plant could achieve electrical efficiency in the range of 46.35-60.32% in lower heating value.
