This paper addresses the use of the partial oxidation process within a gas turbine cycle. In a partial oxidation reaction fuel is oxidized in a sub-stoichiometric atmosphere at a pressure and a temperature similar to those in the combustion chamber of a conventional turbine. Following the sub-stoichiometric stage, oxidation of the fuel is completed in the final stage. The absence of excess air in the first stages makes it possible to reduce the work required by the compressor and to decrease NOx formation. To assess the partial oxidation concept, several gas turbine systems were simulated and optimized. The results of the comparison study and exergy analysis of the cycles considered are presented.
