Gas turbines are clean, compact and eÆcient engines for electric power generation. They are used at a large scale to this end and are usually red with natural gas. A novel development is to re them with coal gas produced by a coal gasier. This opens ways to use the huge coal resources in a clean and eÆcient operation. As the combustion properties and conditions of coal gas are very dierent from those of natural gas, it is necessary to redesign the burners and combustors of the gas turbine. Because of the complexity of the burners and combustors in a gas turbine, many diÆculties have to be taken care of.
