This paper gives the development status of GE’s new aeroderivative premixed combustion system. This system consists of a new fuel staged annular combustor, compressor rear frame, first-stage turbine nozzle, electronic staging controller, and fuel delivery system. Component test results along with a description of the combustion system are presented. This new system will reduce NOx emissions by 90 percent relative to the original aircraft engine combustion system while maintaining low emissions of CO and UHCs. Tests of a LM6000 gas turbine equipped with the new system are planned for early 1994.
