The authors’ companies are working to establish the technology base for an advanced direct coal-fired gas turbine system. This work, sponsored by the Department of Energy, is directed at the electric utility application. This paper describes the technical approach and discusses its feasibility. Successful development of a slagging combustor is key to this effort. It will first be developed at subscale. Following this, integrated testing will incorporate the subscale slagging combustor and a small gas turbine into an operating electric generating system. In addition, a utility-sized combustor module will be designed and tested under utility operating conditions.
