Abstract:

This report summarizes the results of a one-year investigation of advanced issues related to sensing and control of combustion. The ultimate goal of this work is to develop procedures for optimizing and controlling the operating characteristics of gas turbine combustors. Toward this end, an extensive literature survey has been conducted, and model-based and heuristic-based control schemes have been proposed. Keywords Controlled combustion Distributed parameter control Combustion Optimization of combustion Gas turbines.
