Combustion, Fuels and Emissions for Industrial Gas Turbines
MetadataShow full item record
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 or economics. Many types of gaseous and liquid fuels that can be used in Gas Turbines are discussed, as will be the two basic types of combustion system employed – ‘conventional’ and ‘Dry Low Emissions’ – along with the flexibility of these systems to accept different types of fuel. Some of the common contaminants found in fuels are discussed along with the impact these have on the operability and maintenance of industrial and aero-derivative gas turbines.
