An integrated method for power plant analysis, including rotating component matching and CFD simulation of the combustion process, is applied to the study of gas turbines supplied with hydrogenated fuels originating from the natural gas reforming. The method proposed by the authors allows estimation of the power plant performance and emission in the gas turbine operating range. A comparison is then carried out between the plant behavior with conventional fuelling and with decarbonised fuel supply. Attention is also paid to the study of the combustion regimes with either natural gas or fuels with increasing hydrogen contents, in order to achieve a realistic insight of both the temperature distributions and the growth of nitric oxides throughout the combustion chamber.
