Reducing Gas Turbine Emissions

Application A Pollution Engineering article describes how engineers from Vogt Power Intl. improved the performance of emissions systems of a gas turbine power generating plant.
Using the CFD software as an evaluation tool, the engineers designed a two-zone distribution grid to improve flow distribution entering the CO modules, ammonia injection grid and SCR. Installed just upstream of the CO catalyst modules, the grid redistributed the flow using angled perforated plates that allowed the passage of varying amounts of exhaust gas in different regions of the plane, while limiting an increase in gas-side pressure drop that would decrease the gas turbine efficiency. The engineers used the software to adjust the design of each grid sector, and to evaluate its influence on each component downstream.
