Abstract

This paper focuses the attention to the possibility of a correct combustion close to the flameless regime, even in the presence of lower calorific value fuels like those that can be found with high concentrations in the bio-mass derived ones. In addition, the authors pay attention to the nitric oxide control by means of an optimal choice of the pilot injector location. The authors follow their previous experiences in the search of feasible modifications to an existing lean-premixed combustor for a definite pollutant abatement from a micro-gas turbine.
