FOR GAS TURBINES
GROUND BREAKING BENEFITS
Capability to fully utilize
OUR UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY
Finno Exergy’s innovation is based on using pulsed deflagration combustion compatible with existing technology, which has yielded significant results. The technology team have successfully harnessed concepts prevalent in ICE combustion and applied them to gas turbines. Effectively the technology is able to harness 80% of the benefits without any of the drawbacks associated with pulse detonation.
Finno Exergy was established in 2012 by Timo Erämaa and Heikki J Salminen. They spotted an opportunity for a technology to enable power generation with the electrical efficiency of Internal Combustion Engines (ICEs) along with the reliability, the availability, the ability to use several different fuels, and the reduced emissions of gas turbines.
The Finno Exergy pressure gain combustion (PGC) process is available for gas turbines in all application areas. Using accurate flow and combustion control, pressure gain of more than 25% has been verified by measurement in our test unit. The simulation driven product development process of pressure gain combustion system is done within the Finno Exergy integrated virtual development environment.
SUPERIOR EFFICIENCY OUT OF A CLEANTECH SOLUTION
The Finno Exergy PGC system is capable of complete burning with low emissions. It can handle a variety of conventional as well as renewable fuels, including alcohol fuels with water content. Freedom of fuel choice as well as high efficiency contribute to an environmentally smart solution. An important part of the development and validation process is a gas generator test unit that has been running
INTEGRATED VIRTUAL DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT
Cutting edge 3D-CFD flow and combustion simulation is integrated to full system simulation and optimization by 1D software, used in conjunction with laboratory testing to calibrate models and verify test results. Avant-garde application of powerful engineering tools enabled the technology team to create the most impressive results within a short timeline. Technology team is available to joint development projects
