Abstract
The reports describe an exploratory development program to identify, evaluate, and demonstrate dry techniques for significantly reducing NOx emissions from stationary gas turbine combustors. (Volume 1 documents the research activities leading to selection of 26 combustor design concepts which could potentially meet the program goals.) Volume 2 documents the Phase II bench-scale evaluation of those concepts to experimentally evaluate their emission reduction potential. Results from the testing program identified two design approaches capable of significant emission reduction. A staged centertube design, relying on burner operation near the lean blowout limit, gave low NOx and CO emissions on clean No. 2 fuel oil, but was ineffective for fuels containing bound nitrogen. A rich-burn/quick-quench (RB/QQ) design, producing a fuel-rich primary zone and quickly quenching the effluent from that region to the high overall excess air conditions required by the gas turbine cycle, successfully controls NOx from both thermal and fuel-bound sources while maintaining low CO emissions for high thermal efficiency. The RB/QQ concept was selected for scaleup to full size hardware in Phases III and IV.
