Gas Turbine Performance - What Makes The Map?
MetadataShow full item record
The power and efficiency characteristics of a gas turbine are the result of a complex interaction of different turbomachines and a combustion system. This tutorial addresses the basic characteristics of each of the components, and defines the rules under which they interact, as well as typical control limits and control concepts. Important nondimensional characteristics such as Mach number and Reynolds number are introduced. The concept of component matching is explained.
