(57) ABSTRACT

Accordingtothepresentdisclosure,aturbogeneratorsystem may be combined With other heat/energy sources. A simple cycle or recuperated cycle turbogenerator have a variety of fuel options and grid connect or stand alone capability that can be combined With one or more external heat sources such as a Solar Collector/Receiver Heat Energy System, a Bio-mass Gasi?er/Combustor Heat Energy System, a Fuel Cell Heat/Energy System, a Nuclear Heat/Energy System, a Waste Heat/Energy System, or some other suitable Heat/ Energy System. The above external heat systems can be used toprovide alofpartoftheheat/energyinputtooperatethe turbogenerator and achieve electrical output, as Well as a turbogeneratorhotexhaust?oW thathaspotentialforother uses. Using an integral turbogenerator loW emission com bustor and fuel control as part of these combined systems has additional advantages. It is emphasized that this abstract is provided to comply With the rules requiring an abstract that Will alloW a searcher or other reader to quickly ascertain thesubjectmatterofthetechnicaldisclosure.Itissubmitted With the understanding that itWill not be used to interpret or limit the scope or meaning of the claims.
