Since the flow and the combustion processes are continious, the limitations for fuel for gas turbines is much less when compared with other types of engines. Gas turbines enable the use of low calorific value biofuels. Gas turbines can use wide range of fuels from natural gas at cogeneration plants to Kerozene on aircraft engines. Nowadays, increase in the petrol prizes increase tendancy to use bio-fuels in gas turbines for energy generation. Bio-fuels has the potential to contribute a significant portion of the electricity consumed in Turkey. In addition it provides an alternative to fosil-fuel-based energy and creates a new market for agriculture. Multifuel useage capability will increase efficient reliable operations of gas turbine enginesCombined heat and power systems using biofuels will widely spread in the energy industry and greatly contribute to the economy of our country. The prior consideration in the project will be investigation of true air-fuel ratio, pressure and temperature on bio-fuel cobustion for high efficiecy. During the operation of the engine the property of the flow incoming to the combustion chamber varies. Ideal air to fuel ratios for various operating points will be obtained, and the results will be veifyed exğerimentally. Varying calorific value of the fuel will arise need for varying fuel flow rate for efficient combustion, to achieve efficient combustion using bio-fuels is one of the most important outcome of the work. At the end of the project, the results of the previously submitted thesis at the Aerospace Engineering Department will be used as to obtain performans characteristics of rotating components evaluating the measurments taken from the gas turbine. According to results obtained through the component performance estimation analysis, the modifications required to permit operation on Biofuel will be designed and applied to gas turbine.Finally, the system will be operated, and for comparing the efficiency and performance of the ststem with various types of fuel.


Surrogate model based system identification and control of gas turbine engines
Ekinci, Sinan; Yavrucuk, İlkay; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2019)
The focus of this thesis is on small low-cost turbojet engines where the fuel flow is provided by a gear-type fuel pump rather than a more traditional fuel metering unit. The incorporation of such type of fuel flow actuation devices introduces additional nonlinearities into the modeling and control of the small turbojet engines. As an alternative solution, this thesis presents and applies online/offline parameter estimation and adaptive control methods to such sub-class turbojet engines. For the simulation ...
Aerothermodynamics of turbine blade trailing edge cooling
Tunçel, Tuğba; Kahveci, Harika Senem; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2018)
It is known that the thermal efficiency of gas turbines strongly depends on the turbine entry temperature of the working fluid. This has resulted in increased turbine working temperatures, and peak temperatures in advanced gas turbines have been well above maximum allowable metal temperatures for quite some time. For turbine blades to survive while operating beyond these material temperature limits, internal and external cooling techniques have been developed. Due to structural and aerodynamic restrictions,...
Cooling performance investigation of a two-pass rib-roughened channel
Kavas, İsa; Kurtuluş, Dilek Funda; Yasa, Tolga; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2015)
The performance of the modern aero-engines is highly dependent on the turbine inlet gas temperature. The higher temperature leads to more compact and efficient machines. Additionally, specific fuel consumption of the engine is decreased for the same thrust rating. However, the turbine inlet temperatures of the today’s engines are already beyond the material structural limits. Hence, the turbine section must be cooled down to acceptable levels. Various types of cooling methods are typically applied to the ga...
Thermodynamic analysis of plasma-assisted reforming of methane
Maşera, Kemal; Taylan, Onur; Sustainable Environment and Energy Systems (2016-6)
Conventional techniques of syngas production use the exhaust gas of combustion of fossil fuels or feedstock like biomass itself. High temperatures are required for this process. To achieve necessary high temperatures, about 30% of feedstock is used initially. Another disadvantage of these conventional techniques is the tar formation which can damage the system by blocking the equipment. On the other hand, plasma processes are more efficient techniques to convert energy like solar, electrical, etc. int...
Simulation of a non-premixed swirl burner
Solmaz, Mehmet Burak; Uzol, Oğuz; Uslu, Sıtkı; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2014)
Flame stabilizing in a gas turbine combustion chamber is one of the designing issues. Non-premixed swirling flames are commonly applied to aerial vehicles’ combustors due to their advantages in flame stabilizing and flame length shortening. However, swirling flows are very complex and hard to simulate even without reaction. Previous studies have showed that Large Eddy Simulation (LES) is able to predict swirling flow with a good degree of accuracy. On the other, it is quite expensive and is still far away f...
