PM Gas Turbine Emission Measurements from Field Studies Using the UMR Approach at Project APEX
The UMR approach for PM emission measurements of gas turbine engines, in the field, will be discussed. In particular a method for fast (0.1-1Hz) real-time analysis of the size distributions, shape parameters, number density, mass concentration and number and massbased emission indices of exhaust particulate matter from 5nm to 1000nm (1mm) will be presented. The fast system performance will be compared to that of established slower measurement techniques conventionally used for such measurements. By way of example, data from the recent NASA sponsored project APEX will be presented.
