Summary and Info
-Covers every aspect of gas turbine design and operation-Presents necessary data and helpful suggestions to assist engineers to obtain optimum performance for any gas turbine, under all conditions-Serves as a desk reference both for students and professionals The gas turbine is a power plant which produces a great amount of energy for its size and weight and thus has found increasing service in the past 20 years in the petrochemical industry and utilities throughout the world. The gas turbine's compactness, weight, and multiple fuel applications make it a natural power plant for offshore platforms.This second edition is not only an updating of technology, which has seen a great leap forward in the 1990s, but also a rewriting of various sections to better answer concerns about emissions, efficiency, mechanical standards and codes, and new materials and coatings. At a time when energy costs are high, this important handbook expertly guides those seeking optimum use of each unit of energy supplied to a gas turbine.
