The authors examine in this paper the response of a micro gas turbine (MGT) combustor when supplied with gaseous fuels from biomass treatment or solid waste pyrolysis. Actually, a sort of off-design operation is induced by the employment of low calorific value fuels both in the combustor and in the whole micro turbine system. The objective is to optimize the combustor behaviour under the point of view of combustion efficiency and pollutant control.

To this aim, several solutions are experienced for a combustor fuelled with low LHV gaseous fuels derived from biomasses or solid waste treatment. An external EGR option is also considered as activated. The combustion development is analyzed by a combined approach based on the partially stirred reactor hypothesis and on the flamelet concept within a CFD simulation workbench.
