Gas turbines are the predominant prime movers in the aviation industry and account for about 20% of the installed capacity for electricity generation globally. They have fast ramp up and down capabilities, which make them complementary to intermittent renewable generation. Furthermore, with the increasing interest in producing renewable hydrogen, gas turbines can play an important role in the implementation of a successful hydrogen economy. Lean premixed combustion is the desired combustion regime in industrial gas turbines. It results in a low level of NOX emissions due to operating at lower temperatures and facilitates better combustion efficiency. However, the main issue with operating g..
