Present day land-based gas turbine combustors, operating on oil, must meet strict requirements for emissions (CO, unburned hydrocarbons, particulates, smoke and NOx) and burn stabily without pulsations over a wide range of operating conditions. In addition many engines, such as those produced by ABB, operate with both oil and natural gas fuels either together or independently. This paper concentrates on the development of an oil injection system which is optimised for ABB’s double cone burner (Figure 1) and which does not affect the operation of this burner on natural gas. The development procedure, which involved a coupling of numerical and experimental techniques, is described. The results of the application of this procedure indicate that a simple plain jet atomiser in conjunction with a small quantity of unswirling air admitted at the head of the burner is the best option for this burner.
