As a part of the United States Department of Energy’s High Temperature Turbine Technology Program, the Morgantown Energy Technology Center is participating in a Ceramics Corrosion/Erosion Materials Study. The objective is to create a technology base for ceramic materials for use in stationary gas power turbines operating in a high-temperature environment produced by combustion of low-caloric, coal-derived gas. Dynamic and Static Test facilities are designed and installed which have the capability to burn a varying low-caloric, coal-derived fuel gas in a controlled manner. This paper gives a description of METC’s design philosophies in developing these combustion test facilities.
