Objectives This project will identify the bounds of safe design and operation of high efficiency combined cycle gas turbine and combined heat and power systems, which operate on a range of fuels with high and variable concentrations of hydrogen. The goal of the project is to increase the range of fuels that can be safely used in power and heat generating plant. Using modeling and large-scale experimental work, this project will benefit the manufacturers and operators of power plants, which may potentially use fuel containing high or variable levels of hydrogen such as gas feeds from landfill and anaerobic digesters.

Extract from Press Release dated 5 Sept 2011 :

"A 2 million project to advance the safe design and operation of gas turbines, reciprocating engines and combined heat & power systems using hydrogen based fuels has been launched by the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI.) Through new modeling and large-scale experimental work the ETI project will look to identify the bounds of safe design and operation of high efficiency CCGT (combined cycle gas turbine) and CHP (combined heat and power) systems operating on a range of fuels with high and variable concentrations of hydrogen.

The goals of the project are to increase the range of fuels that can be safely used in power and heat generating plant by: a) Indentifying the boundaries of safe design and operation of power generation systems using hydrogen based fuels; and b) Identifying improvements in the detailed design and instrumentation of hydrogen fuelled power systems in order to deliver more robust and inherently safer system designs.

The outcomes of this project will benefit the manufacturers and operators of all powerplants which may potentially utilise fuel containing high or variable levels of hydrogen such as gas feeds from landfill and anaerobic digestors.

The project will be led by the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL), an agency of the Health and Safety Executive, in collaboration with Imperial Consultants, the consulting arm of Imperial College. The project will investigate the impact of a flameout in a CCGT or reciprocating engine CHP system, which may result in an explosive mixture of fuel and air being pumped into a hot exhaust system before the flameout is detected. This in turn could lead to an explosion."

Abstract

Hydrogen is likely to be an increasingly important fuel component in the future. This 3.5m project was designed to advance the safe design and operation of gas turbines, reciprocating engines and combined heat and power systems using hydrogen-based fuels. Through new modelling and large-scale experimental work the project sought to identify the bounds of safe design and operation of high efficiency combined cycle gas turbine and combined heat and power systems operating on a range of fuels with high and variable concentrations of hydrogen. The goal of the project was to increase the range of fuels that can be safely used in power and heat generating plant. The project involved the Health and Safety Laboratory, an agency of the Health and Safety Executive, in collaboration with Imperial Consultants, the consulting arm of Imperial College London

Moving hydrogen from hype to hope - William Todts
\n \n “I see a pivotal role for hydrogen,” in Europe’s efforts to achieve its climate goals, said Frans Timmermans. And up jumped the crowd in a rare standing ovation for a climate commissioner. Hydrogen is the talk of the town and the Commission is widely expected to make it a big priority in its green industrial strategy. So, are we about to enter the golden age for hydrogen and - if so - what does it mean for transport? \n\n \n\n\n \n \n \n\nRelated Environmental IssueClimate Change and EnergyRelated Transport ModeAviationCarsFreightFuelsInfrastructureLorriesShippingRelated Policy AreaInvestmentStandards
