Effects of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) on Turbulent Combustion and Emissions in Advanced Gas Turbine Combustors with High-Hydrogen-Content (HHC) Fuels
Performer: Purdue University
Project No: FE0011822
The primary objectives of this project are to develop experimental methods, kinetic models, and numerical tools to quantify and predict the impact of EGR on nitrogen oxides (NOx) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions, combustion kinetics, radiation heat transfer, turbulent combustion, and combustion instabilities for HHC fuels by using laminar and turbulent flow reactors and gas turbine combustors operating at high temperatures and pressures. This project will provide detailed data for improving chemical kinetic models of EGR effects, supply insights into the effects of EGR on flame speeds and turbulent flame structure, and assess the impact of EGR on emissions in a high-pressure combustion test rig.
