Abstract This is the last interim report for the High Hydrogen project. It describes and discusses the work performed to date at Buxton, the process used to design commission and operate the circular duct test rig for exploring the operational capability of plant using hydrogen-based fuels with heat recovery systems on their exhaust systems. There will be one further deliverable from this project which will provide results for the HRSG model tests and draw the full programme of works together from the literature review, through the laboratory experiments and the two scale experimental rigs. The executive summary on page 9 provides a good insight into the report and its objectives. The key insights from Prof Hans Michels, whilst on a limited number of tests, provide some key information that begins to link the project phases).

The objectives of the tests were to model at reduced scale,the consequences of a flameout in a full-size combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) when running on high hydrogen fuel mixtures. The test parameters varied were the fuel mixture composition, the equivalence ratio and the exhaust gas temperature. The heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) was modelled by a series of tubes giving a blockage ratio of 40% per tube row. The numbers of tube rows tested were 0, 8 and 15.

This report presents the results obtained without analysis; it does however comment upon the consistency of the data sets in respect of the parameters tested.
