Turbine Thermal Management
Performer: NETL On-Site Research
Project No: FWP-2012.03.02
Program Background and Project Benefits
This project will identify the combination of internal and external cooling concepts that provide composite benefit for reduced cooling flow, heat management, and which can be commercially manufactured. 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 additionally investigate NETL-RUA’s near-surface embedded micro-channel (NSEMC) concept and/or tripod-hole, as well as internal cooling and film cooling configurations for cooling effectiveness and manufacturability.
