The development of integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) systems provides cost-effective and environmentally sound options for meeting future coal-utilizing power generation needs in the world. The combustion of gasified coal fuel significantly influences overall performance of IGCC power generation. Experimental measurements are carried out on a non-premixed model combustor, equipped with a double-swirled syngas burner. Planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF) of OH radical measurement is adopted to identify main reaction zones and burnt gas regions as well. Together with the temperature and emission measurements during the exhaust section, some important characteristics of the syngas flame are investigated overall. In this paper, the effects of the CO/H2 molar ratio consisting of syngas fuel are investigated under different humidity. With the increase of CO/H2 ratios, the concentration field of OH radicals is gradually away from the nozzle exit, and the nozzle exit almost no existence of OH radicals, forming a typical lifted flame. In addition, fluorescent signal strength of OH radicals pronounced weakening, the flame gradually appeared W type distribution and more and more obvious with the increased of humidification amount. At the same time the average exhaust temperature of combustor CO and NOx missions almost no change. The study can provide a reliable database for high moisture gas turbine combustor design and combustion numerical simulation.
