Low calorific value fuel gas, obtained by pressurized fluidized bed gasification of coal/biomass mixtures, is combusted at 0.8 MPa with air or oxygen in a vertical cylindrical chamber (D = 0.28 m, L = 2.0 m). The fuel (T = 1060 K) and oxydizer (air at 350 K, oxygen at 460 K) are injected coaxially, resulting in an essentially axissymmetric flow pattern. Particles have been removed from the fuel gas stream by a cyclone, mounted between the gasifier and the combustor. A two-dimensional model, implemented in the CFD code FLUENT was developed for the calculation of temperatures, flow patterns and species concentrations throughout the combustor. The calculated results are compared with experimental data for two low calorific value fuel gas compositions and two oxidizer compositions at two axial combustor locations (X/L = 0.175 and X/L = 1). The results appear to justify further investigation of the applicability of the model to low calorific value fuel gas fired gas turbine combustors.
