Abstract
THIS PROJECT IS DEVELOPING A NOVEL, CATALYTICALLY IGNITED, PLUG-FLOW COMBUSTOR THAT WILL IMPROVE GAS TURBINE PERFORMANCE. BASED UPON PRIOR SBIR PROJECTS AND INTERNAL RESEARCH, THE PROJECT WILL EXPERIMENTALLY TEST KEY ASPECTS OF THIS IMPROVED CATALYTIC COMBUSTOR, DEMONSTRATING IMPROVED OPERATIONAL LIMITS. THIS NEW APPROACH TO THE CATALYTIC COMBUSTOR OFFERS THE POTENTIAL FOR PLUG-FLOW COMBUSTION AT HIGH VELOCITY AND TEMPERATURES ALONG WITH EXCEPTIONAL MULTIFUEL, TURNDOWN, AND HIGH-ALTITUDE RE-LIGHT CAPABILITIES.
