A Major National Scientific and Technological Project Approved


Recently, the project “Aerodynamic matching simulation technology for advanced, high efficient and zero emission combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT)” led by SDJU and jointed applied by China United Gas Turbine Technology Co., Ltd. was approved by MIIT (Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China). The project is an important national science and technology project, managed by the Basic Science Center Aero-Engine and Gas Turbine. The project leader is Professor Zeng Lingyan from SDJU School of Mechanical Engineering.

The project aims to facilitate China’s goal of “carbon emission peak by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060” and the future development direction of “new electric power system based on new energy sources”. Geared to the demand of future gas turbine, with hydrogen as the main fuel of oxy-fuel CCGT, this project intends to study the complete machine aerodynamic matching simulation of split recompression and oxy-fuel combined-cycle configuration, to form the variable-dimensional complete machine emulation technology for gas turbine, quickly predict CCGT performance in support of a rapid analysis on the combined cycle of advanced, high efficient and zero emission gas turbine. Guided by Basic Science Center’s internationally cooperative concept of “advanced exploration, international cooperation, opening and sharing, and collaborative innovation”, this project provides a number of key technological supports to studies of the future high efficient, zero emission and low pollution power generation gas turbine.

The approval of this project indicates that the development strategy and measures of “integration of production and education” in our school have achieved remarkable results and the scientific research and industrial needs in our school have achieved deep integration. It also indicates that SDJU’s ability for organized scientific research of major national projects has been improved.

Project leader Professor Zeng Lingyan is mainly engaged in research of combustion, gas-solid flow, etc. In the past five years, she has presided over 1 National Natural Science Foundation project and more than 10 horizontal researches. She has published 74 SCI research papers, 1 monograph, obtained 78 national invention patents, 1 patent in the United Kingdom, 1 in the United States and 1 in Germany, won 1 national second prize for technological inventions, 2 provincial and ministerial first prizes for technological inventions, and 1 first prize for higher education and teaching achievements.
