Technology requirements for direct coal-fueled turbine systems are discussed. Combustion, emissions, and turbine life considerations are emphasized. Compact, short residence time combustors must provide acceptable combustion efficiencies and emissions using the coal fuels. The turbine flow path exposed to the products of combustion (POC) from those combustors must achieve acceptable deposition, erosion, and corrosion (DEC) lifetimes. Initial combustion and POC requirements are reviewed based on past experience and the results of a recent program to evaluate combustion, emissions, and DEC from a subscale turbine combustor.
