Title: FUEL OIL AXIAL STAGE COMBUSTION FOR IMPROVED TURBINE COMBUSTOR PERFORMANCE
Abstract:
A turbine engine has two combustion zones so as to operate in conditions where water scarcity is an issue. The secondary combustion zone is located downstream of the primary combustion zone. Fuel can be fed into an air scoop having air from a shell surrounding the primary and secondary combustion zone. The feeding of the fuel through the air scoop allows atomization of the fuel. The mixture can then enter the secondary combustion zone and mix with the products from the first combustion zone.
