This paper describes experimental test runs utilizing catalytically supported thermal combustion for gas turbine application. Test fuels were No. 2 distillate oil and low Btu synthetic coal gas. The tests were carried out over a range of pressure, temperature, and mass flow conditions. Analysis of these results are presented and the implications for future combustor design are discussed. Catalytically supported thermal combustion demonstrated the potential for very low emission performance.
