Course on Ultra Clean and Low Pulsation Gas Turbines
November 3 - November 7
Reduction of CO2 emissions is of primary concern in power generation. This requires more efficient gas turbine cycles. Increase in efficiency can be achieved by higher pressure and higher turbine inlet temperatures or by completely new concepts. All of them need novel combustor technologies, allowing ultra-low emissions, fuel flexibility and stable operation over a wide operational range. The course will start with an overview of current gas turbine technology. Based on this knowledge we will discover additional highly efficient gas turbine cycles. An additional challenge of combustion-based systems are NOx emissions. Low NOx emissions are often associated with combustion instabilities with high pulsation amplitudes affecting the operational range of the gas turbine. First, methods to achieve ultra-low NOx emissions will be presented. Then we will discuss what leads to these instabilities, simple models to describe them and how to suppress their occurrence. We will present methods for fast and efficient mixing, combustors for ultra-wet cycles and constant volume combustors for gas turbines.
objectives of the course :
i) Leading the participants to understanding the principles of clean gas turbine technology,
ii) Sharpening the engineering background for more efficient power generation cycles,
iii) Providing concepts for sustainable energy generation,
iv) Building in capability amongst the participants in the design of ultra-low emission technologies,
v) Providing exposure to combustion instabilities, their modeling and damping methods, enhancing the capability to model thermoacoustic problems and to develop mitigation measures.
About IIT Indore:
Indian Institute of Technology Indore (IIT Indore or IITI), located in Madhya Pradesh, is one of the Institutes of Technology established by the Government of India in 2009. It is one of the eight new Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) established by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India under The Institutes of Technology (Amendment) Act, 2011 which declares eight new IITs as well as the conversion of Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University to IIT. The Act was passed in the Lok Sabha on 24 March 2011 and by the Rajya Sabha on 30 April 2012.Arjun Singh, the then HRD minister of India laid the foundation stone of IIT Indore on 17 February 2009 in its permanent campus located in Simrol, Indore, Madhya Pradesh. The institution started functioning from 2009-10 in a temporary campus at Institute of Engineering and Technology of Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya under mentorship of IIT Bombay.The first batch of IIT Indore graduated in the year 2013, and the institute celebrated its first Convocation Day on 8 June 2013. IIT Indore’s permanent campus is at Simrol, which is approximately 25 km from downtown Indore. From January 2016 onwards, the institute is functioning entirely at the permanent campus at Simrol.
