HYdrogen combustion: Pressure effects On combustion and THErmoacousticS

Project description

Controlled hydrogen combustion could accelerate the transition to 100 % hydrogen-fuelled gas turbines

Hydrogen plays a fundamental role in low-carbon energy systems. Produced from electrolysis, it can be used as a storage medium to facilitate the integration of intermittent energy sources into the electricity system. Unlike traditional natural gases, hydrogen’s flame dynamics and combustion stability are significantly compromised at the high pressures that gas turbines typically operate. The EU-funded HYPOTHESis project aims to deepen understanding of the combustion dynamics of hydrogen, enabling the operation of 100 % hydrogen-fuelled gas turbines. The project will carry out an extensive experimental campaign using a medium-pressure combustor that enables hydrogen combustion at high pressures. New physical and machine-learning models will be developed for predicting and controlling the dynamics of hydrogen flames.
