Title: Combustor with axially staged fuel injection

Abstract

A combustor with axially staged fuel injection includes an endcover and a fuel injector that extends axially downstream from the endcover. The fuel injector includes a cylindrical shell formed by an outer wall and an inner wall. A first plurality of outlets is circumferentially spaced across the inner wall. A first plurality of premix channels is defined between the outer wall and the inner wall. Each premix channel of the first plurality of premix channels is in fluid communication with a fuel supply, a compressed air supply and a respective outlet of the first plurality of outlets.
