Ultra-wet Gas Turbine

07.06.2012
We offer a method to improve the passive scalar homogenization of mixing fluidic jets in cross flow configurations especially within the combustion chamber of a turbine. This is achieved by using fluidic oscillators that create an oscillating or pulsating fluid flow at the oscillator exit due to their way of construction. By this improved method high amounts of steam can be added to the combustion process and thus significantly increase the level of efficiency.<<br><br>The oscillation frequency of the injected fuel is thereby regulated only by the mass feed of the supplied fluid.<br>

The combination of cross flow injection and oscillation/pulsation of the fluid flow increases primarily the mixing ration of the two fluid flows within a combustion chamber (fluid & air) and moreover leads to a more effective burning. <br> The fluidic actuators can be installed within new (gas) turbines but can also be integrated in already existing ones.<br> <br> <strong>Benefits</strong><br>

<ul> <li>Better temporal homogenization: NOx reduction, improved fuel value</li> <li>Pressure loss in turbine is reduced: enhancing performance rate</li> <li>Decrease of mixing length by ca. 50%: turbines could be build smaller</li> <li>Fluidic oscillators require less maintenance</li> <li>Usage of nearly any gaseous fuels</li> <li>Increased macro- and micromixing phenomena: higher gains in mixing quality</li> </ul> <strong>IP Rights</strong><br> PCT application filed<br> <br> <strong>Patent Owner</strong><br> Technische Universität Berlin</p>

Im Focus: Researchers develop method to transfer entire 2D circuits to any smooth surface

What if a sensor sensing a thing could be part of the thing itself? Rice University engineers believe they have a two-dimensional solution to do just that.

Rice engineers led by materials scientists Pulickel Ajayan and Jun Lou have developed a method to make atom-flat sensors that seamlessly integrate with devices...

Im Focus: Three components on one chip

Scientists at the University of Stuttgart and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) succeed in important further development on the way to quantum Computers.

Quantum computers one day should be able to solve certain computing problems much faster than a classical computer. One of the most promising approaches is...

Im Focus: Substitute for rare earth metal oxides

New Project SNAPSTER: Novel luminescent materials by encapsulating phosphorescent metal clusters with organic liquid crystals

Nowadays energy conversion in lighting and optoelectronic devices requires the use of rare earth oxides.

Im Focus: A bit of a stretch... material that thickens as it's pulled

Scientists have discovered the first synthetic material that becomes thicker - at the molecular level - as it is stretched.

Researchers led by Dr Devesh Mistry from the University of Leeds discovered a new non-porous material that has unique and inherent "auxetic" stretching...

Im Focus: The force of the vacuum

Scientists from the Theory Department of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg have shown through theoretical calculations and computer simulations that the force between electrons and lattice distortions in an atomically thin two-dimensional superconductor can be controlled with virtual photons. This could aid the development of new superconductors for energy-saving devices and many other technical applications.

The vacuum is not empty. It may sound like magic to laypeople but it has occupied physicists since the birth of quantum mechanics.
