Abstract: a b s t r a c tNatural gas is the primary fuel for industrial gas turbines, which provide about one quarter of the world's primary energy supply. Beside methane it also contains larger hydrocarbons in small, varying ratios. This variation is expected to rise due to the increasing usage of non-traditional gas sources. Fuel composition has a large impact on auto-ignition delay time, which is a fundamental parameter for the optimal design and operation of gas turbines. For the oxidation of such mixtures, Curran,…
