This paper presented the work on the design and part-load operation of a power generation system composed of a pressurized molten carbonate fuel cell and a micro-gas turbine (MCFC/MGT). The gas turbine was based on the commercially available one and the MCFC was assumed to be newly designed for the hybrid system. The effect of different control strategies on the performance of system during part-load operation has been analyzed. Performance of system and gas turbine was compared at the same part-load considering the different control strategies. The results show that the system efficiency is lower compared with the same systems analyzed by the other authors. The system has good performance when both the turbine inlet temperature and cell temperature are maintained close to the design-point condition, but it is difficult for gas turbine to obtain the original power.
