In order to increase the fuel flexibility of the current design of the SynGas burner [4,5,6], Ansaldo Energia, since the growing requests of the market, performed a R&D financed project to use the SynGas fuel available as the unique fuel to feed the gas turbine. Therefore the new working condition to be fulfilled by the modified SynGas burner are the following: a) ignition; b) acceleration; c) loading at part load; d) change over from diffusion line to main SynGas line. To fulfill with new requirements, the standard V94.2K burners have been modified in order to operate from ignition up to the change over point with a SynGas mixture provided by the coal gasification process of a typical IGCC plant [7]. After the design phase, a experimental test campaign on the new design burner has been performed at atmospheric pressure. In order to validate the test results carried out at actual engine working conditions a further test campaign has been performed at the high pressure consistent with the test rig technical limitations [2.3]. The paper show the results carried out that are really promising to meet the customer requirements.
