Solid oxide fuel cell /gas turbine (SOFC/GT) hybrid power systems have been recognized as having the potential to operate at unprecedented levels of performance (e.g., 50%+ electrical power generation efficiencies with significantly mitigated greenhouse gas, criteria pollutant and noise emissions). Although the emphasis has been upon land applications, there are aeronautical benefits that may be derived as well. Despite these benefits, there have been limited investigations into the technical merit and feasibility of incorporating these hybrid systems onboard aerovehicles. A feasibility investigation has been performed in conjunction with fuel cell system modeling capabilities to conceptually establish auxiliary power system possibilities as well as the viability technology gaps.
