The KTT system is a gas turbine propulsion system designed especially for the automotive application. It’s main features are the three turbines on three different shafts and the close integration of the turbine and transmission into one unit.

The first experimental engine, the MkI, based on this system is being developed by United Turbine, a subsidiary to AB Volvo, in Sweden. This paper describes some results of the development of the main components for this engine; the compressor, the turbines and the heat exchanger system. Details on test equipment are given.

The results presented are not final and development continues. These results also provide a base for future engine designs.
