DE-PS26-05NT42380-3B Development of HydrogenCombustion Systems for FuelAugmentation to Reduce NOx in MW-scale Combustion TurbinesApplications are requested that develop technology for the use of hydrogeninMW-scale combustion turbines to reduce NOx emissions. Research hassuggestedthat the tactical introduction of hydrogen can bring about mechanisms thatreduce the formation of NOx in turbine exhaust. Applications are requestedthat show how these mechanisms and know-how can be developed and exploitedsothat the required technology can be implemented in new machines and backfittedor retrofitted into existing turbines.It is envisioned that this technology could be developed and introduced byoriginal equipment manufactures or organizations with the skills andexpertiseto provide combustion system retrofits.It is expected that the utilization of hydrogen in a fuel augmentationapplication will provide solutions to technical issue associated with themanagement and implementation of a hydrogen infrastructure. Developingthisknowledge is an essential underpinning to a hydrogen economy.Application Development and Project ImplementationApplications in Topic Area 3, Sub-topic Area B must include a phasedapproachshowing a logical organization of work and that allows for ?go? and ?no-go?decisions at the conclusion of each phase. The following phases arerequired:Phase I?Conceptual Design and R D Implementation Plan: Concept toCommercialDeployment; Phase II?Detailed Design and Validation Test Program; and PhaseIII? System Fabrication and Testing. It is expected that applications willhavemore details regarding Phase I work. Since Phases II and III are contingentonPhase I results specific details are not expected. However Phases II andIIImust provide an anticipated scope, level of effort, and approach. The R DImplementation Plan, a major deliverable of Phase I, will provide the basisfornegotiating and authorizing Phase II work and anticipating the magnitude ofthePhase III effort. Offers are encouraged to read the section of thesolicitationtitled ?General Guidance for Preparing the Research DevelopmentImplementation Plan?.Technologies that are developed beyond the conceptual phase may besubmitted asPhase II and Phase III applications. Technologies that are alreadydevelopedbeyond the detailed design phase may be submitted as Phase IIIapplications.It is anticipated that work subsequent to Phase III, such as pre-commercialdemonstrations, could be supported through other competitive initiatives.It is expected that in this Sub-topic Area Phase I efforts will be between12and 18 months, Phase II efforts will be between 12 and 24 months, and PhaseIIIefforts will be between 18 and 24 months. These periods of performanceareintended to be consistent with the goal of providing a commercial offeringinthe 2010-2011 time frame.
