Abstract:

Practical aspects of combustor design for the use of alternate fuels in the AGT 1500 vehicular gas turbine engine are discussed. Engine performance test results are related to laboratory data and to combustor component performance over the range of engine operating conditions. Fuel effects on starting and low power efficiency are related to atomizer performance and to drop size distribution. Smoke emissions are correlated with fuel characteristics, engine operating conditions, and combustor primary zone design parameters. Results are presented for fuels ranging from gasoline to No. 6 oil.
