An Experimental and Modeling Study of NOX-CO Formation in High Hydrogen Content Fuels Combustion in Gas Turbine Applications

Performer: University of South Carolina

Project No: FE0012005

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project will focus on improving the ability to predict the formation of nitrous oxides (NOx) when using high hydrogen content fuels. Understanding NOx formation pathways will allow hydrogen combustor designers to reduce emissions while operating at higher temperatures. Specifically, a kinetic model will be developed and validated via data obtained from a high-pressure combustion system and a high-pressure laminar flow reactor, and then incorporated into a computational fluid dynamics model as both detailed and reduced models and also through a dynamic on the fly mechanism reduction approach.
