Design, Performance And Operational Characteristics Of A 6500 Horsepower High Performance Industrial Gas Turbine
This paper will describe the 570-K high performance industrial gas turbine and provide technical rationale for the design approach and performance limits. Construction details are discussed, including assembly of major modular components. The combustion system is explained, as are the mainshafting and bearings, the lube system, seal and vents. In addition, the engine torquesensor, speed and temperature sensors are discussed along with the electronic control system. Finally, the 570-K production program is identified.
