Abstract

Research and development of an integrated coal gasification combined cycle (IGCC) have made steady progress. Low fuel-NOx combustion technology presents great potential for improving IGCC combustors. The authors have developed an advanced rich-lean combustor designed mainly for achieving low-NOx combustion and flame stability. Under pressurized conditions, we have successfully reduced the NOx emissions (to 60 ppm corrected at 16 percent O2) when ammonia concentration was 1 000 ppm. We have also optimized many design guidelines by clarifying the effects of pressure on combustor performance. This paper describes in detail the characteristics of the advanced rich-lean combustor for use in IGCC.
