Gas Turbine Combustion System Tuning
Through developed experience and expertise, GE Energy technicians have developed the ability to "tune" gas turbine combustion systems (Dry Low NOx or DLN) to minimize the effects of combustion dynamics. The "tuning" of the combustion system can be achieved via on-site or remote tuning services.
For DLN combustion systems, combustion dynamics tuning is required during initial unit start-up and periodically thereafter anytime combustion or hot gas path hardware is changed out. Additionally, combustion dynamics tuning may be required to help meet your goals for operational flexibility.
Combustion dynamics tuning involves the acquisition and analysis of real-time dynamics data using locally installed equipment and adjustment of a gas turbine's operating configuration. Tuning minimizes emissions and combustion hardware stress levels. Dynamics tuning can be performed on-site or remotely using advanced techniques developed by GE Energy.
Monitoring services allow real-time analysis of combustion dynamics, identification of changes to a unit's operating profile and recommendations for corrective tuning. GE customers benefit from improved reliability, availability and regulatory emissions compliance as a result of combustion dynamics tuning.
