Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR COMBUSTION SYSTEM CONTROL
Abstract:
A combustion system includes a combustion chamber, a plurality of fuel introduction locations in the combustion chamber where fuel and air are provided to the combustion chamber for combustion, a fluid flow control device associated with each fuel introduction location, each fluid flow control device being controllable to vary an amount of the air supplied to each fuel introduction location, a plurality of sensing devices configured to monitor a plurality of operational parameters of the combustion system, and a control unit configured to control each fluid flow control device to control the amount of air supplied at each fuel introduction location independent of the amount of air supplied at the other fuel introduction locations, and to control the amount of air provided to all other air introduction locations, in dependence upon at least one of the plurality of operational parameters to minimize excess air provided to the combustion chamber.
