INTRODUCTION TURBULENT COMBUSTION DIAGNOSTICS Non-intrusive laser based spectroscopy methods are ideal N. Oshima, T. Tominaga, K. Saito, Proc. Symposium on Power Ener. Engr., 2008; 6. Mitsubishi 1700 Class Gas Turbine John Zink Ultra Low Emission Burner John Zink Hamworthy Combustion http://www.johnzink.com/applications/ethyle ne-applications/
EXPERIMENTAL SYSTEM Ti:Sapphire Laser Output 10.2 W average power 60 fs duration laser pulses 800 nm center wavelength ~400 cm -1 bandwidth
CALIBRATION FLAME Hencken burner – stable, uniform, near-adiabatic H 2 /air flame 25 mm square fine honeycomb structure with protruding hypodermic needles Volumetric flow rates of fuel and oxidizer controlled to produced specific flame temperatures http://www-personal.umich.edu/~mswool/facilities.htm Frequency / cm -1
SPECTRAL MODELING Hencken burner spectrum Single Hencken burner spectrum Laser Parameters Genetic Algorithm Based Spectral Fitting Code Laser Parameters Laser Beam Power Spectra Single Shot Genetic Algorithm Based Spectral Fitting Code Single Shot Genetic Algorithm Based Spectral Fitting Code Vibrational N 2 CPP fs-CARS temperature measurements at 5 kHz Hencken burner spectrum Fix flame temperature 2000 shots averaged and background subtracted Temperature, scaling factors floated Hencken burner spectrum Accuracy of temperature measurements is affected by the accuracy of calculated laser parameters and accuracy of the reference flame temperature
PRECISION AND ACCURACY Histograms from 2000 single laser shot measurements in Hencken burner Typical values: precision better than 2% accuracy ~ 3% Precision and accuracy improve increasing temperature
RESULTS JET DIFFUSION FLAME Jet nozzle exit diameter = 5 mm Co-flow exit diameter = 160 mm 9 SLPM (7.7 m/s) of hydrogen 180 SLPM (0.15 m/s) of laboratory shop-air
RESULTS DLR GTMC DUAL SWIRL BURNER Performed PSD analysis to compare with previous thermo-acoustic measurements 25,000 single-laser-shot fs-CARS measurements used Observed power spectrum peaks at 176, 308, 485, 796-805 Hz 308 Hz = frequency of dominant longitudinal thermo-acoustic pulsation 485 Hz = precessing vortex core Agrees with previous studies where PVC frequency occurred at 515 Hz I. Boxx, M. Stöhr, C. Carter, W. Meier, Combust. Flame, 2010; 157, 1510-1525.
CONCLUSIONS Successfully demonstrated CPP fs-CARS in turbulent combustor of practical interest Excellent spatial resolution and improved accuracy/precision over ns-CARS measurements Future work: Improve the technique’s dynamic range by splitting the CARS signal into two detector channels (two spectrometers, two EMCCD cameras)
