Future transport and energy systems will still rely on gas turbines for energy conversion. The contribution of aviation to the emission of greenhouse gases and other pollutant species is predicted to increase in the near future, both in absolute quantities as well as relative to other sources. Despite historically being one of the greatest contributors to innovation and technology, the aeronautical industry has faced difficulties in implementing radical changes in aircraft configuration, engine architecture and fuel flexibility. Likewise, stationary gas turbines are predicted to be used in energy generation to compensate for the inherently intermittent solar and wind energy sources. This could be done with the utilization of unconventional fuels like hydrogen, biofuels or synthetic fuels. Therefore, gas turbines will play a major role in energy transition and gas turbine performance should be improved and their pollutant emissions decreased....
