This paper discusses the nationwide impact of the Advanced Gas Turbine Systems Research (AGTSR) consortium which supports the advanced development of land-based gas turbines for future power generation systems. In particular, the paper emphasizes the educational and research missions of AGTSR. The educational program consists of undergraduate fellowships and graduate-level industrial internships at sponsoring company sites. To date, AGTSR has placed twenty interns at some of the major gas turbine facilities throughout the United States. This experience motivates engineering students to pursue gas turbine careers and allows them to gain valuable hands-on experience in an industrial setting. The research arm of AGTSR nurtures collaborative R&D with universities and industry. All the research issues identified by AGTSR are defined by the Industry Review Board (IRB) which is made up of representatives from seven gas turbine/component manufacturers. AGTSR currently supports over thirty research projects covering research needs in the area of combustion, heat transfer, materials, aerodynamics, sensors, alternative fuels, and advanced cycles. This paper highlights the status of the AGTSR consortium and the feedback received from both industry and universities on the effectiveness and impact of the educational and research components of AGTSR.
