The effect of the reformer in an internal-reforming MCFC, looking at temperature distributions, methane conversion and gas compositions was modeled. In the reformer, the methane reforming and water-gas shift reactions occur simultaneously and the conversion of methane to hydrogen, calculated including the thermo-dynamic equilibrium of the reaction, reaches 99%. The endothermic reforming reaction contributes to a uniform temperature distribution. As the methane/water-gas molar ratio decreases at a fixed total flow rate, the working voltage decreases.
