The purpose of this program has been the development of advanced gas turbine engine technologies in support of U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) programs for use in generator sets for hybrid-electric automotive propulsion systems.

Initially the objective of this program had been the development of four key technologies to be applied 10 advanced turbogenerators:

• structural ceramic materials and processes

• low emissions combustion systems

• regenerator and seal systems

• insulation systems and processes.

Of these four, the lack of full program funding has limited 1997 activities to two technologies, i.e.: continued development of ceramics applications and continued regenerator and seal system development.

In late 1997, DoE Office of Transportation Technologies discontinued active sponsorship of this effort, and therefore, the potential application to automotive systems now appears to be delayed. However, the application to stationary engines is very relevant and will proceed.
