Gaseous fuels such as landfill gas contain significant quantities of inerts, typically CO2 and N2. This can lead to difficulties in predicting the emission and thermodynamic performance of industrial gas turbines. An algorithm has been developed to predict emissions of NOx for known quantities of inerts and effects on performance quantified. The effect of steam injection is compared to that of inerts and a relationship established.
