Hydrogen combustion is one of the most promising solution to achieve a global decarbonization in power production and transports. Pure hydrogen combustion is far from becoming a standard but, during the energy transition, hydrogen co-firing can be a feasible and economically attractive shortterm measure. The use of hydrogen blending gives rise to several issues related to flashback, NOx emissions and thermo-acoustic instabilities. To improve the understanding of the effect of hydrogen enrichment, herein a numerical analysis of lean premixed hydrogen enriched flames is performed by means of 3D unsteady CFD simulations. The numerical model has been assessed against experimental results for both cold and reacting flows in terms of velocity profile (average) and flame shape (mean OH* radical fields). The burner under investigation is the swirl stabilized PRECCINSTA studied at the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft-und Raumfahrt (DLR). The DLR’s researchers have shown the effect of hydrogen addition on the flame topology and combustion instabilities at various operating conditions in terms of thermal power, equivalence ratio and H2 volume fraction. Simulations are in good accordance with experimental data both in terms of velocity and temperature profiles. The numerical model provides a qualitative estimation of the flame shape.
