This paper describes the performance of a dry low-NOx gas turbine combustor designed with a new fuel supply concept. This concept uses automatic fuel distribution achieved by an interaction between the fuel jet and the airflow. At high loads, most of the fuel is supplied to the lean premixed combustion region for low-NOx, while at low loads, it is supplied to the pilot combustion region for stable combustion.

A numerical simulation was carried out to estimate the equivalence ratio in the fuel supply unit. Next, through the pressurized combustion experiments on the combustor with this fuel supply unit using natural gas as fuel, it was confirmed that NOx emissions were reduced and stable combustion was achieved over a wide equivalence ratio range.
