  • Active Control of Jet Mixing and Combutstion with Manipulation of Large-scale Vortical Structures

    Individual   Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research  

    Project Year:  2009.04  -  Now

    Micro gas turbines (MGT) for small-scale distributed systems are expected to play a major role for the future energy securuty with lower environmental imapacts. However, downsizing of such gas turbines may cause various problems. For instance, small combustors for MGT are opereated at low Reynolds numbers with a wide range of partial load, it is not a straightford task to keep high combustion efficiency, low NOx emission and flame stability simultaneously. On the other hand, combutsion is a phenomenon related to mixing/diffusion of heat, mass and momentum, and chemical reaction at the molcular level. Therefore, combustion characteristics can be improved by actively controlling the fluid motion. In this study, active conbution control scheme with manipulation of large-scale vortical structures and associated fuel/air mixing is developed to have an ideal flame under variable load conditions.
