Abstract

The stringent emission regulations and the EU commitment to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 is driving the development of low-carbon technologies for energy consuming sectors like transportation or power generation. To meet the decarbonization objectives, these sectors need to be transformed in terms of digitalization, energy efficiency and low-carbon technologies. Among different solutions, green hydrogen has emerged as a relevant alternative and a valuable resource to decrease carbon footprint. Hydrogen and hydrogen-enriched fuels have significant potential to enable the transition to a clean, low-carbon energy systems. In this transition, the use of numerical simulations can play a fundamental role to understand the performance of these fuels in practical applications. In this presentation, an overview of recent developments in methodologies and applications for the modelling and simulation of combustion systems using large eddy simulations and High-Performance Computing (HPC) with focus on pollutant formation and hydrogen combustion will be given.
