Abstract:

Calculations are presented to predict the performance of an alternative fuel in a conventional gas turbine combustor. Existing data for fuel effects on the Detroit Diesel Allison TF41 combustor, a can-annular burner, are correlated with the semi-empirical characteristic time model. The correlations are used to predict the ignition, stability and combustion efficiency performance of a proposed alternative fuel, the AGARD Research Fuel, in the TF41 combustor. Compared to standard NATO F-40 and F-35 fuels the alternative fuel will provide similar combustion efficiency levels, reduced flame stability and significantly degraded ignition performance. Author
