Field Testing Of Gas Turbine Driven Centrifugal Compressor Packages - Test Procedures And Measurement Uncertainties.
MetadataShow full item record
Field testing of gas turbine compressor packages requires the accurate determination of efficiency, flow, head, power, and fuel flow in sometimes less than ideal working environments. Nonetheless, field test results have significant implications for the compressor and gas turbine manufacturers and their customers. Economic pressures demand that the performance and efficiency of an installation are verified. Thus, an accurate determination of the field performance is of vital interest, not only to the user of compressors and gas turbines, but also to their manufacturers. Discussed herein is the field testing of gas turbine driven compressors and the measurement uncertainties one can expect when following appropriate test guidelines. Also mentioned are common problems and considerations regarding field testing.
