    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to implementing policy control. In one example communication system, a core network exposes a service policy to an application server, and the application server authorizes user equipment with the service policy. Before accessing a service provided by the application server, the user equipment pushes, to the core network, the service policy that needs to be used to access the application server. A core network device performs policy control such as charging, QoS, routing, gating control, or redirection on a service flow or a data packet between the user equipment and the application server according to the service policy pushed by the user equipment.

The reaction outlet of the exhaust-gas reformer is connected to the inlet of the solar reformer, the flue gas side inlet of the exhaust-gas reformer is connected to the exhaust-gas outlet of the gas turbine. The solar reformer outlet is connected to the combustion chamber inlet. Combustion gas drives the gas turbine after fuel burns in the combustion chamber, and the exhaust gas enters the exhaust-gas reformer. Fuel and steam are mixed and enter the reaction side of the exhaust-gas reformer through a fuel inlet. A reforming reaction between the fuel and steam under heating of the exhaust gas generates syngas. A further reforming reaction occurs by absorbing concentrated solar energy after the syngas enters the solar reformer, and the reactant is provided to combustion chamber.
