A very brief history of the Army closed-Brayton-cycle gas turbine program is presented as background for discussion of the status and recent test results at the Advanced Power Conversion Experimental Facility at Fort Belvoir. The APCEF program is intended to emphasize component development in contrast to system development at the Advanced Power Conversion Skid Experiment (APCSE) at San Ramon, Calif. The APCEF is described along with the components being tested, experimental test results are discussed and analyzed, and a preliminary evaluation is presented.
