In the field of micro gas turbine, attention must be paid on the design of the combustion chamber to reduce NOx formation without compromising combustion efficiency. To this goal flameless combustion represents an appealing solution. The present work aims at the design and optimization of a combustion chamber for a micro gas-turbine, operating in flameless combustion regime. The feasibility of such system is analysed with numerical simulations, using CFD-tools. Among the several configurations under investigations, it is possible to identify one that guarantees the maximum combustion efficiency, the minimum pressure losses as well as the minimum overall dimension.
