Abstract:

Electrical power generation consumes a large fraction of the nations fossil fuel, notably coal, and produces significant CO2 emissions. Gas turbine based cycles such as IGCC are constrained by turbine component temperature limits, and consequently have potential for lower fuel consumption and emissions. A novel, highly effective technology for cooling rotating turbine components has been under exploratory development for high performance aircraft propulsion. This program will lead to demonstration of its application to gas turbine based stationary power generation, specifically advanced IGCC systems. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: Superior turbine cooling directly drives increased efficiency. Improved generation efficiency will decrease fuel consumption, emissions and consumer cost. The technology is also potentially applicable to commercial aircraft propulsion, decreasing fuel consumption and emissions.
