Gas Turbine Handbook: Principles and Practice, Fifth Edition by Tony Giampaolo

By Tony Giampaolo

Newly revised, this new 5th variation incorporates a bankruptcy on waste warmth restoration and discusses this know-how intimately together with a the benefits and boundaries to waste warmth restoration, environmental restraints, thermodynamics of warmth restoration, fluid homes, boiler, condensers, steam generators, off layout habit and exhaust catalyst. This ebook indicates how microturbine designs depend seriously at the centrifugal compressor and are, in lots of features, just like the early flight engines and should illustrate how the strategy of the microturbine clothier is to lessen fee.

As inlet ∆P increases, power output decreases. This is discussed in more detail in Chapters 8 and 9. In either case the output shaft speed is the same as the compressor/turbine speed. The output shaft speed may be geared up or down depending on the rated speed of the driven equipment. Single spool-integral output shaft gas turbines, both ‘hot end drive’ and ‘cold end drive,’ are used primarily to drive electric generators. While there have been applications where ‘single spool-integral output shaft gas turbines’ have driven pumps and compressors, they are uncommon.

The second combustor concept is the annular or single combustor. The single combustor is a stand-alone combustor, generally outside the envelope of the compressor and turbine. The annular combustor is also a single combustor but within the envelope of the compressor and turbine (Figure 3-14). Two main distinctions exist between these designs. The single combustor is usually configured with a single fuel nozzle, while the annular combustor must be configured with multiple fuel nozzles. Secondly, the annular combustor incorporates an inner wall or liner and heat shield, which is necessary to protect the rotor.
