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.
