Gas Turbine Fuel and Fuel Quality Requirements for use in Industrial Gas Turbine Combustion
MetadataShow full item record
For economic and environmental reasons, it is important that gas turbines used in Oil & Gas applications can burn a wide variety of fuels with the minimum impact on the environment. This workshop will examine the types of gaseous and liquid fuels that can be used in Industrial Gas Turbines, and discuss the two basic types of combustion system employed – ‘conventional’ and ‘Dry Low Emissions’ – and the flexibility of these systems to accept different types of fuel. It will also look at common contaminants found in fuels and the impact these contaminants can have on the operability and maintenance of an industrial gas turbine.
