Thermally Effective and Efficient Cooling Technologies for Advanced Gas Turbines
Performer: University of North Dakota
Project No: FE0011875
Program Background and Project Benefits
This project will research three cooling methods for improved turbine airfoil cooling performance. Turbine aerodynamics and heat transfer research will develop advanced cooling technology that will allow for higher firing temperatures which translate into increased cycle efficiency. Specifically, this project will investigate incremental impingement for the leading edge, counter cooling for the pressure and suction surfaces, and sequential impingement for the pressure and suction surfaces of the vane.
