Abstract
The project was conducted for the purpose of evaluating field experience with a turbine powered passenger car. The Williams Gas Turbine, WR-26, regenerative turbine automotive engine was mounted in a 1971 American Motors Corporation Hornet test vehicle. The engine uses a single power turbine to develop 80 horsepower. The engine regenerator incorporates two large discs of a ceramic-glass material for inlet air preheating. Testing was accomplished using the 1970, 1972, and 1975 Federal Test Procedures. In addition, steady state and proportional sampler tests were conducted. By positioning of the power turbine bypass in the closed position, it was demonstrated that low hydrocarbon emissions are possible with this engine; however carbon monoxide and nitric oxides were not reduced sufficiently to be able to meet 1975 or 1976 emission standards. An in depth deriveability investigation with the vehicle was not possible.
