Practical Vehicular Gas Turbines 2001-01-2541

Microturbines are being successfully used in production hybrid electric buses. They are economically sound while demonstrating long life with dramatically reduced maintenance and emissions. However, to reach high production in a broad range of vehicles, certain improvements will be needed. These include lower first cost, much faster response time and higher efficiency into the 40% range at both full load and part load. This paper addresses these challenges and their solutions while using technology that mostly exists.
