Next Generation of Micro Gas Turbines for High Efficiency, Low Emissions and Fuel Flexibility

Project description

Mega potential for micro gas turbines

There’s a growing market for a new class of gas turbines. These are micro gas turbines (MGTs), which can produce shaft power below 500 kW and can achieve high power density and efficiency. They also have the advantage of better fuel and operational flexibility compared to other gas turbines. The EU-funded NextMGT project will develop a multidisciplinary training and research programme aimed at the development of technical expertise and scientific knowledge, which will boost understanding of the fundamental design and operational aspects of MGT technology. The project will provide insight into the main features of the incipient MGT community and the existing structures for collaborative research and technology transfer between research institutions and the industry.
