Task 8.2 - subscale catalytic combustor development

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Solar/DOE ATS engine program seeks to reduce engine pollutant emissions to single digit levels and low pattern factor. Program goals include the attainment of emissions (NOx, CO and UHC corrected to 15% O{sub 2}) below 10 ppmvd over the 50 to 100% load range, pattern factor less than 0.2, and long term combustor component durability. Recent improvements in Solar`s dry low NOx combustion technology guarantee less than 25 ppmvd NOx and 50 ppmvd CO (@ 15% O{sub 2}) in field units. It is expected that with the incorporation of advanced combustion technology (e.g. variable geometry, use of ceramics in ... continued below

Description

The Solar/DOE ATS engine program seeks to reduce engine pollutant emissions to single digit levels and low pattern factor. Program goals include the attainment of emissions (NOx, CO and UHC corrected to 15% O{sub 2}) below 10 ppmvd over the 50 to 100% load range, pattern factor less than 0.2, and long term combustor component durability. Recent improvements in Solar`s dry low NOx combustion technology guarantee less than 25 ppmvd NOx and 50 ppmvd CO (@ 15% O{sub 2}) in field units. It is expected that with the incorporation of advanced combustion technology (e.g. variable geometry, use of ceramics in combustion liners, improved CO sensor based control systems, improved fuel-air premixing, advanced liner cooling, etc.) into present combustion systems, substantial reductions in emissions over currently guaranteed levels will be possible. However, the next generation of low emissions gas turbines may be required to incorporate catalytic combustion to guarantee the lowest possible levels of pollutant emissions with available technology, As part of the Solar ATS Phase II program, catalytic combustion was selected as the primary combustion approach capable of attaining the emissions goals of the ATS program for medium sized industrial gas turbines. Catalytic combustion technology development in Phase II consisted of two main tasks: Task 2.8.2 involving the evaluation and demonstration of catalytic combustion technology at simulated engine conditions in a subscale rig environment, and Task 2.8.5 involving the design and evaluation of a single can full scale catalytic combustion system based on subscale results. Successful full scale rig operation will be followed by sector rig testing, and the procurement of a full set of engine hardware for an engine demonstration as part of Solar ATS Phase III program, If successful in the ATS program, catalytic combustion will be introduced in Solar`s production turbines depending on market requirements and cost.
