The work described in this paper is part of the effort performed under Department of Energy (DOE) Contract DE-AC21-80ET14752. The primary objective of this contract is to demonstrate the viability of the Westinghouse pressurized, fluidized bed gasification process for production of low and medium heating value fuel gas. One of many secondary objectives is to conduct combustion tests with medium heating value gas produced by the DOE/Westinghouse gasifier. In late 1980 and 1981, tests were performed on an experimental Westinghouse combustor during normal gasifier operation at the Test and Development Center. Pollutant emissions and combustion efficiency were evaluated as a function of inlet temperature, air-to-fuel ratio, pressure and reference velocity. Results for medium heating value gas combustion are presented along with combustion test results on distillate and coal derived liquid fuels.
