Main research area

For almost 20 years, the main research area of ​​the research group "Flow and Combustion Instabilities" at the Chair of Combustion Technology has been the investigation and identification of the physical mechanisms that lead to the self-excited development of combustion instabilities ("Thermoacoustics, combustion oscillations, combustion chamber oscillations, pulsating combustion / flames, combustion oscillation" ) in large-scale combustion systems. These periodic disturbances, characterized by high-energy pressure oscillations, lead to strong mechanical and thermal loads on components up to their failure and flashback and are therefore not tolerable for continuous operation of the combustion system. Depending on the underlying feedback mechanism, which of course determines the effectiveness of remedial measures to a considerable extent, both low-frequency vibrations (“rumble, humming”) and high-frequency (“whistling, screaming”) occur, whereby - in addition to the vibration of the static pressure in the combustion chamber as well as in upstream and downstream parts of the system (burner housing, mixing device, exhaust gas routing) - there are also strong fluctuations in the flame geometry and the integral heat release from the combustion process.

The causes for these combustion oscillations, which mostly represent a system instability in which various components of a combustion system (fuel / air mixer, burner, flame, combustion chamber, etc.) interact with one another depending on the time or frequency, which ultimately lead to a considerable , unacceptable amplification causing weak disturbances can be extremely diverse. Periodic fluctuations in the ignition zone (s) ("ignition disturbances"), combustion- or flow-induced changes in the swirl intensities over time ("swirl number, swirl strength, swirl stabilized"), periodic formation of reactive vortex structures ("ring vortex formation, vortex shedding") and their in-phase reaction Excite vibratory overall system in order to then with phase-correct feedback with sufficient energy supply to stable, automatically obtained permanent vibrations at an energetically high level (atmospheric combustion systems often up to 20 mbar pressure amplitudes, pressure-charged combustion systems up to 1 bar at frequencies between a few Hz up to 5 KHz.

The mathematical description of the overall system for calculating its vibration stability requires knowledge of the frequency-dependent transfer behavior ("flame transfer function, amplitude ratio, phase response") of all system components involved in the physical feedback circuit (mixer - burner - flame - combustion chamber), depending on all relevant operating parameters of the furnace ( thermal power, air ratio, type of fuel, swirl strength, mean combustion pressure, etc.), which can be determined using control methods. From these statements, it is then possible to predict the stability behavior of the overall system depending on the geometry and the desired operating ranges, as well as to show effective and inexpensive remedial measures, which must be adapted to the feedback mechanism that is effective in the individual case of vibration. The following graphic is a link to a more detailed explanation of the knowledge we have gained.

Lectures and other courses

"Flow and combustion instabilities in technical combustion systems"

In addition to compliance with the pollutant emission limit values ​​prescribed by the legislator, the reliable guarantee of a stable combustion process over the entire control range is one of the greatest problems in the development and optimization of new combustion systems. Combustion chambers that can be coupled during the design phase cause periodic combustion instabilities to be eliminated through empirical measures during commissioning, which are time-consuming and costly modifications to the original design.

Phenomenology, definition of the concept of stability, classification of periodic unsteady combustion processes, influencing variables on the tendency to vibrate

•    Metrological recording of dynamic flame properties Hot wire anemometry (flow measurement technology), thermal conductivity probe (concentration measurement technology), inertia-compensated thermocouples (temperature measurement technology), water-cooled condenser microphones (pressure measurement technology), ionization probes (measurement technology for flame front detection), photomultiplier (measurement technology for determining the unsteady reaction behavior using OH radical radiation (Chemiluminescence)

•    Properties of turbulent premix flames

•   Significance of premixed combustion systems, ignition stability and tendency to oscillation, properties of stationary, turbulent premixed flames, properties of periodically unsteady, turbulent jets and flames (frequency-dependent transmission behavior of premixed, turbulent jet and swirl flames), formation and reaction of turbulent ring vortex structures

•    Influence of pressure / flame oscillations on the pollutant emission behavior of the furnace

•    Effects of pressure fluctuations on the formation of the fuel gas / air mixture (burnout behavior, thermal NOx)
