The development of integrated, coal-gasification combined cycle (IGCC) systems provides cost-effective and environmentally sound options for meeting future coal-utilizing power generation needs in the world. The combustion of gasified coal fuel significantly influences overall performance of IGCC power generation. This study focuses on investigating the nitrogen dilution effects on a double-swirled non-premixed syngas flame. As the references, investigations on the H2 and CO double-swirled flames with N2 dilution are presented. Planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF) of OH-radical measurement is adopted to identify main reaction zones and burnt gas regions. Together with temperature and emission measurement during exhaust section, some important characteristics of the syngas flame are overall investigated. Experimental result shows that syngas flame root near the burner exit demonstrates double flame front structure. The existence of N2 expands the flame opening angle and enlarges the main reaction zone, and it may lead to lower NO emission and higher CO emission in exhaust gas.
