In this paper, we focus on formation of NO X under oxy-fuel MILD combustion using JHC (jet-in hot co-flow) burner. The effect of the different oxygen dilution ratio in the co-flow is analyzed for MILD combustion formation and also for characterizing NO X emission.
RANS (Reynolds averaged Navier Stokes) with the modified k-ε equation and EDC (eddy dissipation concept) model were applied for 2D-axisymmetric computational domain using the Ansys Fluent. It is found that the effect of the oxygen concentration rather than the composition of dilution gas is more significant for the formation of the MILD combustion and as the oxygen concentration of the dilution gas increases under MILD combustion conditions, the region with D a < 1 expressed as MILD regime tends to be decreased. The effect of a diluted oxygen concentration in the oxy-fuel combustion on NO x emission under MILD condition is found to be much greater than the amount of air leakage into co-flow, and NO emissions are almost unaffected by the increase of N 2 concentration in case of MILD combustion condition within practical air leak ranges.
