The results of developmental testing in a high pressure, full annular combustion section af the FT8 industrial gas turbine are presented. Base power conditions were simulated at approximately 60% of burner pressure. All aspects of combustion performance with liquid fuel were investigated, including starting, blowout, exit temperature signature, emissions, smoke and liner wall temperature. Configurational changes were made to improve liner cooling, reduce emissions, adjust pressure loss and modify exit temperature profile. The effects of water injection on emissions and performance were evaluated in the final test run. Satisfactory performance in all areas was demonstrated with further refinements to be carried out during developmental engine testing.
