On Fuel Suitability For Gas Turbines.
MetadataShow full item record
Industrial gas turbines allow operation with a wide variety of gaseous and liquid fuels. To determine the suitability for operation with a gas fuel system, various physical parameters of the proposed fuel need to be determined: heating value, dew point, Joule-Thompson coefficient, Wobbe index , and others. This paper describes an approach to provide a consistent treatment for determining the above physical properties. It also review the impact that certain fuel characteristics have on the combustion process, as well as the overall operation of a gas turbine and its ancillary systems.
