Design and Optimization of Fuel Injection of a 50 kW Micro Turbogas
AbstractThe present article deals with the design of a micro turbogas turbine suitable for on board applications, e.g., as a power generator on hybrid transit bus, characterized by a simple constructive approach. Deriving the machine layout from an existing KJ-66 aircraft model engine, the authors propose a theoretical design of a compact, lightweight turbogas turbine, by investigating the technical possibility and limits of the proposed design. In particular, a different combustion chamber layout has been proposed, and fuel adduction channels for different swirler designs have been simulated via ANSYS Fluent in order to identify a satisfactory fuel spreading. As a result, the complete characterization of the design parameters and geometries has been performed, and a series of RANS simulations has been used in order to identify an optimal swirler configuration.
