The project is to develop a unique facility at ORNL to evaluate the exhaust emission and assess the degradation of structural materials of turbines, reciprocating engines, and microturbines when conventional and nontraditional fuels are used.
The ORNL Fuel-Flexible Turbine Environment Test (FFTET) Rig is designed to perform the following tasks for a given type of fuel:
- Measure the temperature and gas species at selected locations inside the turbine
- Evaluate materials degradation by placing coupons inside the turbine
- Measure the SOx, NOx, CO/CO2, etc in the exhaust
- Evaluate the degradation of candidate turbine/microturbine structural materials by exposing samples in an exhaust gas stream that is maintained at the desired test temperature and spiked with toxic species or components that make the gas stream characteristic of the exhaust when nontraditional fuels are burned.
