Abstract [en]

Thermoacoustic instabilities usually result from the coupling between the oscillatory heat release and one or more natural acoustic modes of the combustion system. When the shifting of system frequencies caused by the unsteady heat release is limited, the calculation of natural modes allows to identify which of them are excited by the flame once changes in flow temperature and composition due to combustion are considered. In this paper, isothermal computational fluid dynamics simulations are performed to predict the natural modes of a heavy-duty gas turbine combustor in reactive conditions. Combustion and heat transfer are neglected in the numerical analysis to simplify the model and limit the computational effort. The natural frequencies resulting from isothermal simulations are then corrected using a rather basic post-processing approach to account for temperature and gas composition changes due to combustion process. Frequency and amplitude of the calculated modes are finally compared to experimental measurements to evaluate the ability of the acoustic analysis to capture frequency and spatial shape of the combustor natural modes excited by the flame
