Topic Area 3A: Development of Highly Efficient ZeroEmission HydrogenCombustion Technology for Mega-Watt Scale TurbinesThe government is requesting applications that present a logical plan forthedevelopment of combustion systems that can be installed or retrofitted intoexisting turbines that can utilize hydrogen as a fuel, maintain or extendcurrent levels of efficiency, reduce emissions of oxides of nitrogen tolessthan 3 ppm (@ 15 % O2) and eliminate the emissions of carbon dioxide. Itisenvisioned that turbines developed through this subtopic area would beapplicable to electrical power generation in the less than 100 MW sizerangeand for mechanical power applications. It is requested that machinesdevelopedthrough this topic area be fuel flexible making them reliable and availablewith their traditional fuels and applications.Since hydrogen fuel is a significant departure from the conventional fuel(natural gas) typically used in these machines it is requested that theemissions (NOx prevention) control approach be presented as a paralleleffortto the efficiency improvement approach. The intent here is to potentiallyallow near term technology (like the prevention of NOx formation) to beaccelerated and be deployed sooner independent of efficiency improvementefforts. The government recognizes the intrinsic link between NOxpreventionand efficiency improvements, consequently successful applications wouldshowhow these two performance issues (NOx prevention and efficiency) will bebrought together to produce a machine with low NOx emissions and highefficiency.Application Development and Project ImplementationApplications in Topic Area 3, Sub-topic Area A 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 willhave more details regarding Phase I work. Since Phases II and III arecontingent on Phase I results specific details are not expected. HoweverPhases II and III must provide an anticipated scope, level of effort, andapproach. The R D Implementation Plan, a major deliverable of Phase I, willprovide the basis for negotiating and authorizing Phase II work andanticipating the magnitude of the Phase III effort. Offers are encouragedtoread the section of the solicitation titled ?General Guidance for PreparingtheResearch Development Implementation 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 24 and 36 months, and PhaseIIIefforts will be between 12 and 24 months. These periods of performanceareintended to be consistent with the goal of providing a commercial offeringinthe 2010-2011 time frame.
