Gas turbine combustor design entails multiple, and often contradictory, requirements for the designer to consider. Multiobjective optimisation on a low-fidelity linear-network-based code is suggested as a way of investigating the design space. The ability of the Tabu Search optimiser to minimise NOx and CO, as well as several acoustic objective functions, is investigated, and the resulting “good” design vectors presented. An analysis of the importance of the flame transfer function in the model is also given. The mass flow and the combustion chamber width and area are shown to be very important. The length of the plenum and the widths of the plenum exit and combustor exit also influence the design space.
