Stationary Ceramic Component Considerations for Advanced Industrial Turbines
Industry and government in the United States are working together to achieve several specific goals to improve industrial combustion turbine technology. The major goals are improved system reliability, increased fuel flexibility, reduced emission, higher operating efficiencies, and decreased equipment cost. Achievement of these goals will provide the opportunity for wide-scale use of combustion turbine engines in combined cycle power generating systems operating on coal-derived fuels (gaseous and liquid). These highly efficient combined cycle plants can be advantageously applied to base load or intermediate load duty. In addition, the combustion turbine systems alone can continue to serve peak load duty in the simple cycle mode.
