Abstract

Studies were conducted under an EPRI sponsored subcontract from Westinghouse to experimentally determine performance characteristics of Catcom catalysts at simulated gas turbine combustion conditions using No. 2 fuel. Effects of vitiated versus indirect preheat were investigated together with varying adiabatic flame temperature (based on fuel/air ratios), catalyst inlet reference velocity and catalyst length. The temperature profiles, combustion efficiencies and pressure drop data obtained can be used to assess performance of anticipated catalytic combustor designs for gas turbine systems.
