ANALYSIS OF THE PERFORMANCE OF A LOW-POWER ATMOSPHERIC BURNER FOR GAS APPLIANCES FOR HOUSEHOLDS AND THEIR IMPACT ON THE EMISSION AND STABILITY OF THE BURNER

ABSTRACT
The paper presents results of theoretical numerical research dealing with CO and NOx emission performed in the process of optimization of the performance of low-power atmospheric burners. The theoretical part of this paper, whose main goals were better understanding of the complex issues of methodology and establishment of performance prediction and optimization of low-power atmospheric gas burner included numerical variation of independent parameters, such as burner geometry, the coefficients of primary and secondary air and different gaseous fuels including biogas. The findings of theoretically obtained performance prediction and optimization of atmospheric burners were experimentally investigated in purpose built test rigs for a number of variable parameters. The obtained results fully justified the proposed models of performance prediction and burner optimization.
