Under the Ceramic Stationary Gas Turbine Program sponsored by the U. S. Department of Energy, Solar Turbines Incorporated has successfully designed and developed ceramic combustor liners. Their potential for low emissions has been demonstrated in five field-engine tests for a total duration of over 30,000 hours, with over 13,000 hours on EBC protected liners in one engine test. The ceramic combustor development under the CSGT Program (1992–2000), including design, material selection, testing and evaluation are discussed.
