Fuel Testing in GasTurbines

Fuel Testing in GasTurbines THE performance of a gas turbine fuel can be estimated most conveniently by using a single combustion chamber test unit. Such fuel testing has often shown a lack of repeatability that is difficult to ascribe to normal experimental errors only. In reviewing possible sources of error, the uncontrolled variable of atmospheric humidity has been considered. From past records the average specific humidity in the British Isles is 0006 lb. water per lb. of dry air while the maximum on any day is unlikely to exceed 0020 lb. water per lb. of dry air. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

THE performance of a gas turbine fuel can be estimated most conveniently by using a single combustion chamber test unit. Such fuel testing has often shown a lack of repeatability that is difficult to ascribe to normal experimental errors only. In reviewing possible sources of error, the uncontrolled variable of atmospheric humidity has been considered. From past records the average specific humidity in the British Isles is 0006 lb. water per lb. of dry air while the maximum on any day is unlikely to exceed 0020 lb. water per lb. of dry air.
