Abstract:

Current gas turbine combustor design philosophy must reflect consideration of both emission control and high inlet air temperature effects on flame stability, combustor performance, and flame tube life. An experimental facility has been designed for the detailed, systematic study of gas turbine combustion as a function of realistic inlet parameters. In an attempt to provide fundamental gas turbine measurements are described. In addition to a detailed description of the experimental facility, internal gas temperature and gas sampling probing techniques, facility instrumentation, and future engine parameter settings are discussed.
