Abstract

The efficient operation of gas turbines strongly depends on the fuel gas and its properties. Technical fuel gases typically represent multiple component mixtures with varying composition rather than consisting of only a single species. These fluctuations effect the combustion process and interventions are required to increase the efficiency and decrease the operational costs. In this article a laser based sensor system for the real-time analysis of fuel gas mixtures is described and its application in a gas turbine power plant is demonstrated.
