The integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) concept is gaining acceptance as the Clean Coal technology with the best potential for continued improvement in performance and continued reduction in capital cost. In large part this potential will be realized by optimizing the integration of power generation and fuel conversion subsystems and by exploiting advances in gas turbine technology. This paper discusses the impact that technology advances in the gas turbine combined cycle are having on the commercial viability of the IGCC concept. Technical innovations in such areas as coal gas combustion, plant control, and system integration will ensure that IGCC technology will continue to advance well into the future.
