CCS and Power Systems

Advanced Energy Systems - Hydrogen Turbines

Development and Experimental Validation of Large-Eddy Simulation Techniques - Syngas Combustion

Performer: Regents of the University of Michigan

Project No: FE0007060

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project will focus on the development of a computer model that can predict unstable combustion of high hydrogen content (HHC) fuels. Improving large-eddy simulation (LES) models for HHC fuels will lead to hydrogen combustor designs that produce fewer emissions at higher temperatures. Specifically, this project will develop an improved LES model by analyzing critical modeling assumption and validate the model by conducting high pressure measurements of HHC fuel combustion in a dual-swirl gas turbine combustor.
