This paper presents the steady state parametric analysis of the solid oxide fuel cell and micro gas turbine hybrid system based on the IPSEpro software. The characteristic of the novel hybrid system is that both the fuel entering the heat exchanger reformer (HER) and air entering the fuel cell are preheated by mixing with the anode exhaust and cathode exhaust respectively, and thus the normally used heat exchangers can be cut. The heat exchange reformer is introduced for methane reforming. The analysis of the effects of methane reforming degree and the fuel utilization on the hybrid system performance is performed. The efficiency of the hybrid system is up to 67.3% at the design point. The results show the novel hybrid system has great potential for the practical application.
