The design and testing of three natural gas fuel injector configurations for a low emissions gas turbine combustor are described. The injectors provided varying degrees of fuel/air premixing and permitted an assessment of the degree of premixing necessary to achieve NOx emissions below the program goal of 10 ppm. The work described represents a preliminary step in an effort to develop production-level gas turbine combustor hardware with ultra-low NOx capabilities.
