Testing gas turbine combustors and other equipment under high pressure conditions
Research mainly of combustion performance, exhaust characteristics, and cooling performance
This facility was introduced to test gas turbine combustors and their element technologies under high pressure conditions to conduct research on mainly of combustion performance, exhaust characteristics, and cooling performance. There are three types of systems for testing maximum pressure, i.e. the 5 MPa high pressure system (2 systems) and 1 MPa medium-pressure system. At present, this facility continues to be used in the development of high-performance industrial gas turbine combustors and jet engine combustors. In addition to an array of temperatures and pressure, exhaust gas components (nitrogen oxides, etc.) can also be measured. Tests can be carried out for comprehensive performance, including the environmental performance of combustors.
