Honeywell Engines and Systems recently introduced an advanced technology program to reduce emissions from the Vericor line of gas turbine engines for industrial and marine applications. One of the key technologies being developed for this program is the active control of combustion pressure oscillations that are excited in gas-fired, low-emission combustion systems. The ability to reduce the risk of these pressure oscillations enables safe operation of the engine in regimes that minimize emissions. In the first phase of this program, the concept was developed and tested on the combustor of the engine in under a week using dSPACE Prototyper.
