In view of the greater flexibility of a gas turbine combustion system design as compared to that for a piston engine, control of NOx emissions even while keeping the CO and hydrocarbon emissions at very low levels appears feasible. Factors influencing the production of these pollutants in a methane fueled gas turbine type combustor are studied in this investigation by analyzing the gas samples taken at various locations within the combustor. Increasing the homogeneity of the primary zone gas composition by using gaseous or prevaporized liquid fuels is found to be an effective way to reduced NOx emissions.
