Thermodynamic aspects of oxygen-deficient

The oxygen deficient combustion (ODC) is characterized by reactants of low oxygen concentration and high temperature. This work is devoted to analysis of such combustion process from the thermodynamic point of view. It demonstrated the possibilities for reducing thermodynamic irreversibility of combustion by considering the oxygen-deficient combustion process that utilizes both gas- and heat-recirculation. Furthermore, an ODC system utilizes oxygen as oxidizer has higher 1st and 2nd low efficiencies compared to an ODC system using air as oxidizer. This study is a technical guidance for further efficiency-improvement in combustion process especially because the temperature increase due to the reaction in an ODC system is mild.
