On Nov. 12, 2021 at the Conference for Gas Turbines and Gas Turbine Operation Dr. Thomas Steinbacher from IFTA held a presentation on the following topic:
"Modern Methods for 24/7-Condition Monitoring of Combustion Chambers"
IFTA GmbH, Dr. Thomas Steinbacher
The demand for high plant availability at minimum cost requires that the actual condition of a gas turbine is known as precisely as possible at all times. Since the processes in the combustion chamber in particular have a strong impact on product lifetime as well as operating costs (gas price) and at the same time the operating point changes frequently, continuous condition monitoring is essential. Due to the harsh conditions in the combustion chamber and the complex, high-frequency dynamics of the combustion process, special challenges arise here - compared to the monitoring of other components.
This presentation will give an overview of selected technologies of combustion chamber condition monitoring, each illustrated with concrete examples from practice. A brief overview of the most important phenomena occurring in the combustion chamber is given, followed by the specific requirements for a monitoring system.
