This paper describes the technologies that are being developed or extended beyond the current state-of-the-art to achieve Advanced Turbine Systems (ATS) Program goals. The Westinghouse ATS plant is an advanced closed-loop enoled combined cycle, based on an advanced gas turbine engine incorporating novel design concepts and enhancements of existing technologies. The ATS engine is a fuel-flexible design operating nn natural gas with provisions fnr future conversion to coal or biomass fuels. It is based nn proven concepts employed in 501F and 501G engines. To achieve the required performance and reliability the engine will include closed-loop steam cooling, advanced materials and coatings, and enhanced component performance. To minimize NOx emissions, an ultra-low NOx combustion system will be incorporated. To ensure technical success, development programs are being conducted on the following: closed-loop steam cooling, advanced materials and coatings, component aerodynamic performance, flow visualization, optical diagnostics, combustion generated noise, and catalytic combustion.
