Short Course T8: Gas Turbines - Fundamentals of Design, Operation, and Maintenance
MetadataShow full item record
The course covers the new advanced technology gas turbines by outlining all the major components of gas turbines, such as axial flow compressors, axial flow turbines, and dry low NOx combustors. The components of a gas turbine will be addressed from a design, operation, and maintenance point of view as well as their effect on plant operation, plant availability, and reliability. Also covered will be the best practices in operating the new advanced technology gas turbines at variable loads obtaining best efficiencies with minimal down time.
