A catalytic combustor and its control system have been developed and tested on a 150 kW small gas turbine engine. The fuel for the tests was gaseous fuel which consists of 92% CH4 and 8% C3H8. The emission characteristics in the catalytic operating mode and the control procedure during transient operation were investigated in the tests. Results indicated extremely low NOx emissions. However, it was also apparent that further development tests are required to improve combusion efficiency, durability of catalysts, and control stability during transient operation.
