VILLAFLOR, Gloria; MORALES, Graciela V  and  VELASCO, Jorge. Significant Variables in the Combustion Process of Natural Gas. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2008, vol.19, n.4, pp.57-62. ISSN 0718-0764.

The most significant operating variables of the natural gas combustion process, those most sensitive to produce economic and environmental impact, are determined. For this, simulation of the combustion process is carried out using the HYSYS commercial simulator. It is found that the most sensitive operating variables are the air temperature, the temperature of the combustion gases and the excess air used in the combustion. It is observed that the heat produced decreases as the combustion gases temperature increases, it increases as the air temperature increases, and that it decreases as the excess air increases at a constant temperature of the air and of the combustion gases.

Keywords : natural gas; combustion; process simulation; environment.
