Gas Turbine Fuel Considerations

Gas Turbine Fuel Considerations

Published by 82540
Industrial Gas Turbines allow operation with a wide variety of gaseous and liquid fuels. This paper will
address considerations regarding the use of gaseous fuels in gas turbines. To determine the suitability for
operation with a gas fuel system, various physical parameters of the proposed fuel need to be determined:
Heating value, dew point, Joule-Thompson coefficient, Wobbe Index and others. However, fuel borne
contaminants can also cause engine degradation. Special focus is given to the problem of determining the
dew point of the potential fuel gas at various pressure levels. In particular the treatment of heavier
hydrocarbons, and water is addressed and recommendations about the necessary data input are made.
Since any fuel gas system causes pressure drops in the fuel gas, the temperature reduction due to the
Joule-Thompson effect has to be considered and quantified. Suggestions about how to approach fuel
suitability questions during the project development and construction phase, as well as in operation are
made.
