ABSTRAKT

The major concern of the present paper is the numerical simulation of the flow and combustion of methane in a FLOX® combustor at high-pressure operating conditions. The purpose is to investigate the ability of the FLOX® concept to be used in a (micro) gas turbine combustor. FLOX® combustion is a highly turbulent and high-velocity combustion process, which is strongly dominated by chemical nonequilibrium effects.
In a turbulent flow, the key aspects of a combustion model are twofold: (i) chemistry and (ii) turbulence/chemistry interaction. In the FLOX® combustion, we find that both physical mechanisms are of equal importance. Throughout our simulations, we use the complex finite rate chemistry scheme GRI3.0 for methane and a simple partially stirred reactor (PaSR) model to account for the turbulence effect on the combustion. The computational results agree very well with experimental data obtained at DLR test facilities. For a pressure level of 20 bar, computational results for a burner load of 417 kW and an air-to-fuel ratio of λ = 2.16 are presented and compared to experimental data.
