As a part of the United States Department of Energy’s High Temperature Turbine Technology Readiness Program, the Morgantown Energy Technology Center (METC) 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. METC facilities have been designed, fabricated and will be operated simultaneously exposing ceramic materials dynamically and statically to products of combustion of a coal-derived gas. This paper gives a description of the test facilities which have the capability to burn a varying low-caloric gas.
