The EPRI Stationary Gas Turbine Catalytic Combustor Development Program is a multi-year, multi-phase major contract effort. Its objectives are to design, develop and demonstrate a full-scale, field tested stationary gas turbine combustor, employing catalytic combustion technology for reduced NOx emissions. Its focus is the development of a practical and reliable catalytic combustor for current and near-future stationary gas turbine designs fired with low nitrogen (<500 ppm) distillate fuels. The purpose of this paper is to present the results of a preliminary design analysis conducted under the initial tasks of this program.
