This report presents a study on SOFC-based DG plant configurations. The performance of each plant configuration was analyzed, considering first a simple-cycle SOFC and comparing these results to a gas turbine hybrid with SOFC. Issues pertaining to siting, waste heat utilization, and improve costs and efficiency are also reviewed. The performance model uses an hour-by-hour analysis to estimate Overall Cost of Electricity (COE), energy savings, and emissions impacts.
