Increasingly, more stringent emissions regulations have necessitated new gas turbine combustor designs with low pollutant emissions. Radically different modern designs have been developed to meet these requirements while maintaining high combustion efficiencies and good flame stability. While several published methodologies for conventional combustor design exist, none exist for modern ones. This paper describes the development of a new preliminary design algorithm for a modern lean premixed prevaporized (LPP) combustor. It also introduces a new LPP combustor concept. The approach used is multi-disciplinary in nature, applying empirical and semi-empirical models in the algorithm to capture complex processes such as droplet evaporation, chemical reaction, jet mixing, and heat transfer. The resulting set of procedures allows a designer to quickly define the detailed geometry of the combustor and provides an assessment of its performance. The preliminary design procedures were verified using the advanced numerical techniques of computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Reasonable agreement between predictions from the preliminary design and numerical analysis was achieved which indicated that the design procedures have been developed successfully.
