Since 1982, the Department of Energy (DOE), through the Morgantown Energy Technology Center (METC), has been conducting research for the purpose of verifying the feasibility of using coal fuels in heat engine applications. The heat engines of primary concern are the gas turbine and the diesel engine. The overall program objective is to develop the technology base for an environmentally sound, integrated heat engine system which will produce cost-competitive energy from coal. During the past 2 years the major emphasis of the gas turbine development program has been the coal-fueled combustors. This paper will review the current progress on coal-fueled gas turbine combustor development.
