The Performance Evaluation of a Gas Turbine Combustor Ahn, Kook-Young; Kim, Han-Seok; Ahn, Jin-Hyuk; Pae, Hyoung-Su;
The combustion characteristics have been investigated to develop the 50 kW-class gas turbine combustor. The combustor design program was developed and applied to design this combustor. The combustion air which has the temperature of 45, 200, were supplied to combustor for elucidating the effect of inlet air temperature on CO, NOx emissions and flame temperature. The exit temperature and NO were increased and CO was decreased with increasing inlet air temperature. Also, the effect of equivalence ratio was considered to verify the combustor performance. The emissions of CO and NO with inlet air temperature can be analyzed qualitatively by measuring the temperature inside the combustor. The combustion performance with fuel schedule was evaluated to get the informations of the starting and part loading process of gas turbine. The combustion was stable above the equivalence ratio of 0.18. The pattern factor which is the important parameter of combustor performance was satisfied with the design criterion. Consequently the combustor was proved to meet the performance goal required for the target gas turbine system.
