Objective

The overall objective of the project is to design, construct and test the concept of a fuel-staged combustor, to demonstrate a major enhancement of current lean premix technology. This is required as an enabling technology for high efficiency (>60%), flexible, CCGT to overcome the problems of combustion induced thermoacoustic pressure pulsations.

The specific objectives of the project are to demonstrate:
- Base load NOx emissions of below 10ppmv firing natural gas and below 25ppmv firing liquid fuels such as distillate oil at full engine operating conditions.
- Thermoacoustic pressure pulsations of less than 0.3% of total operating pressure over the full engine load range
- Simplification of the engine commissioning procedure
- Elimination of fuel line purging
- Easy adjustment of the fuel-staged combustion system to different ambient conditions and engine operating requirements
