Based on the successful result of the Japanese national project for 300 kW class ceramic gas turbine development (CGT: 1989–1999FY)[1–7], the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) started “Research and Development on Practical Industrial Co-generation Technology” program (NEDO-HGT: 1999–2003 FY)[8–10], funded by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI). the objective of this project was to investigate a high efficient co-generation system that employs “Hybrid Gas Turbine (HGT)”. the HGT means a new gas turbine using both metallic and ceramic parts for its high-temperature section.
In this R&D activity, ceramic material evaluation test and long-term engine operation test of the HGT have been demonstrated. This paper gives some results from the R&D of HGT.
