(54) Title (EN): GAS TURBINE FUEL COMPONENTS
(54) Title (FR): COMPOSANTS DE COMBUSTIBLE DE TURBINE À GAZ

(57) Abstract:
(EN): Gas turbine combustion systems and fuel cartridge assemblies are provided. An exemplary combustion system may comprise a combustor including one or more components, such as a cylindrical combustion liner, a flow sleeve, a main mixer, a radial inflow swirler, a combustor dome, and a fuel cartridge assembly. An exemplary fuel cartridge assembly may comprise first and second fuel manifolds which are connected to respective fuel circuits which supply fuel, such as liquid fuel, through a plurality of fuel passages within the fuel cartridge assembly or to other locations within an associated combustor. The fuel cartridge assembly may further include a plurality of fuel injector tips located at a tip plate of the fuel cartridge assembly through which fuel may be supplied to an associated combustor.
(FR): L'invention concerne des systèmes de combustion de turbine à gaz et des ensembles de cartouches de combustible. Un exemple de système de combustion peut comprendre une chambre de combustion comprenant un ou plusieurs éléments constitutifs, tels qu'une chemise de combustion cylindrique, un manchon d'écoulement, un mélangeur principal, une chambre de turbulence à écoulement radial, un dôme de chambre de combustion, et un ensemble de cartouches de combustible. Un ensemble de cartouches de combustible exemplaire peut comporter des premier et second collecteurs de combustible qui sont respectivement reliés aux circuits de combustible respectifs qui fournissent le combustible, notamment du combustible liquide, par l'intermédiaire d'une pluralité de passages de combustible à l'intérieur de l'ensemble de cartouches de combustible ou vers d'autres emplacements à l'intérieur d'une chambre de combustion associée. L'ensemble de cartouches de combustible peut comprendre en outre une pluralité de pointes d'injecteur de carburant situées au niveau d'une plaque de pointes de l'ensemble de cartouches de combustible à travers laquelle le combustible peut être introduit dans une chambre de combustion associée.
