  • Patent number: 10514116
    Abstract: A pipe connection for conducting a fluid that is under pressure is provided, having two tubular connection parts for a conical clamping connection, which are screwed together by a union nut while one is inserted in the other, wherein each connection part has a conical sealing surface that contacts the other in a sealing manner and wherein an annular groove is provided in one of the sealing surfaces. In order to enable the pipe connection also to conduct a fluid having cycling or varying temperature, the inner of the two connection parts has thermal insulation on the inside of the pipe at least in the axial segment of the sealing surface of the connection part, wherein the thermal insulation tube has a cam or a collar on the outer surface, which engages in a recess, which is axially bounded by the two connection parts.

  • Publication number: 20170044996
    Abstract: A method for operating a burner assembly, in particular a burner assembly of a gas turbine, wherein an evaluation variable representing the combustion stability is determined and at least one control variable is altered, at least based on the determined evaluation variable, when the determined evaluation variable does not fall within a previously defined desired range, the desired range of the evaluation variable being constant over the entire output range of the machine, and wherein the evaluation variable is determined based on measured maximum actual amplitudes in previously defined frequency bands and measured actual outputs of the burner assembly.

  • Publication number: 20170044995
    Abstract: A method for selecting operating points of a gas turbine while taking into consideration at least one controlled variable, the operating points being defined at least by parameter combinations of manipulated variables, wherein the operating points are automatically selected on the basis of already known parameter combinations by using an interpolation method, the Kriging interpolation method being used as the interpolation method.

  • Publication number: 20150316266
    Abstract: A burner (1) with a longitudinal burner axis (2) and a mixing channel (3, 4), formed in an annular manner around the longitudinal burner axis (2), for the mixing of fuel and air. Each mixing channel is bounded radially on the inside by a channel hub (5, 6) and radially on the outside by a channel outer wall (7, 8). A fuel concentration distribution in the mixing channel (3, 4) from the channel hub (5, 6) to the channel outer wall (7, 8) being adjustable by adjusting the introduction of fuel to provide an adjustable fuel concentration distribution at respective radial locations across each mixing claimed. Also a combustion system (20) with a burner (1) and to a method for operating a burner (1).

  • Publication number: 20130247578
    Abstract: A method of operating a gas turbine, a device for regulating the starting and/or the operation of a gas turbine and a power plant are provided. The method includes continuously extracting fuel from a fuel network, and combusting, in at least one combustion chamber of a gas turbine, the fuel by adding combustion air. For an increase of a fuel stream supplied to the at least one combustion chamber, a fuel volume is extracted from a fuel store and supplied to the fuel still to be supplied to the at least one combustion chamber.

  • Publication number: 20130074506
    Abstract: A turbine burner is provided. The turbine burner has a secondary feed unit and a primary feed unit. The primary feed unit has a primary mixing tube and a fuel nozzle that are arranged concentrically around the secondary feed unit. The primary mixing tube and the fuel nozzle have a fluid flow connection. The fuel nozzle has an annular wall that is radially spaced in the axial direction from the secondary feed unit such that a gap height is fainted by the annular wall and the secondary feed unit. The annular wall has an inside wall directed toward the secondary feed unit and having blades with a leading edge on the upstream side. The fuel nozzle has an inlet and the blades have an axial distance from the inlet. The ratio of the distance to the gap height is greater than 1 and less than the gap height.
