  • Patent number: 10436117
    Abstract: A fuel injection system for a gas turbine engine includes a vane in an airflow path within the gas turbine engine, the vane includes an air channel with an outlet in communication with the airflow path; and a fuel nozzle within the vane operable to inject fuel into the air channel to at least partially premix and prevaporize the fuel with a secondary airflow from within the vane in the air channel prior to entry into the airflow path through the outlet. A method of injecting fuel within a gas turbine engine includes at least partially premixing and prevaporizing fuel with a secondary airflow from within a vane in an air channel within the vane, the vane within an airflow path of the gas turbine engine.

  • Patent number: 8733094
    Abstract: The invention relates to systems and methods for rapidly and isothermally expanding and compressing gas in energy storage and recovery systems that use open-air hydraulic-pneumatic cylinder assemblies, such as an accumulator and an intensifier in communication with a high-pressure gas storage reservoir on a gas-side of the circuits and a combination fluid motor/pump, coupled to a combination electric generator/motor on the fluid side of the circuits. The systems use heat transfer subsystems in communication with at least one of the cylinder assemblies or reservoir to thermally condition the gas being expanded or compressed.
