Based on 0-D mathematical modeling and numerical simulations, influences of diary biogas on Molten Carbonate Fuel Cell (MCFC) performance are presented.The governing equations of the MCFC model are presented, the equations were utilized for an adequate simulator construction. An analysis of diary biogas as fuels for MCFC is presented. The results are compared with Natural Gas (NG) as a reference fuel. The diary biogas is characterized by both lower efficiency and lower fuel utilization factors in comparison with NG.
