The goals of Parker Hannifin Corporation’s Advanced Turbine Program project is to advance its micro-mixing injector platform, which has already demonstrated low NOx emissions and to improve combustion operability, in particular by attenuating combustion dynamics. This will be accomplished by developing and implementing a high-bandwidth piezo valve with the capability to adaptively modulate fuel flow to the premixer.  Parker has partnered with Georgia Institute of Technology to achieve this goal. The development of this technology will significantly improve the operability of hydrogen turbine combustors for improved integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) power plants with carbon capture and storage (CCS) with better availability.
