Technology options and plant design issues for fuel-flexible gas turbines

Jenny Larfeldt     Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery AB, Finspong, Sweden

Abstract

Gas turbines are continuously flowed through machines with high power densities. Their application area is widening from natural gas-fired base-load operation to fuel-flexible base load or plants for flexible operation. Gas turbines can offer low emissions in a wide operating range with the prevailing lean, premixed combustion systems. Gas turbines can be integrated in plants for power generation and sometimes heat. A natural gas-fired gas turbine in a combined cycle has less than half the CO2 emissions in grams per produced kWh compared to a coal-fired conventional plant. With carbon capture ...
