The Characteristics of Swirl Spray Combustion in Gas Turbine Combustor Hong, Jeong-Gu; Kim, Hyeok-Ju;
The present study conducted experimental study of spray combustion to investigate the effect of the inlet conditions of fuel and air on the flame structure, the flame stability and the characteristics of emission in the can-type model of a gas turbine combustor. In the experiment, the diameter of fuel droplet was measured using Malvern particle size analyser and temperatures in the combustion chamber were measured with R-type shielded thermocouple. In addition, flame structure was taken picture with camera and analysed. Gas analyser was also used to analyse the concentration of each components of exhausting gas. The experimental results showed that the flame condition was optimal with swirl number, 0.63 and equivalence ratio, 0.5 for controlling the flame stability, the combustion temperature and the NOx concentration. The present study concluded that both the flame structure and the emission formation were strongly affected by the swirl intensity, which selection was found as an important parameter for either stabilizing flame or lowering the quantity of NOx.
