In cooperation with U.S. Department of Energy’s Morgantown Energy Technology Center, a Westinghouse led team is working on the second part of an 8-year, Advanced Turbine Systems Program to develop the technology required to provide a significant increase in natural gas-fired combined cycle power generation plant efficiency.

This paper reports on the Westinghouse program to develop an innovative natural gas-fired advanced turbine cycle which, in combination with increased thing temperature, use of advanced materials, increased component efficiencies and reduced cooling air usage, has the potential of achieving a lower heating value plant efficiency in excess of 60%.
