Microturbines are being successfully used in production hybrid electric buses. They are economically sound while demonstrating long life with dramatically reduced maintenance and emissions. However, to reach high production in a broad range of vehicles, certain improvements will be needed. These include lower first cost, much faster response time and higher efficiency into the 40% range at both full load and part load. This paper addresses these challenges and their solutions while using technology that mostly exists.
