Gas Turbine Engineering Handbook (4th Edition)


File Size: 22.58 Mb

Description
The fourth edition of the Gas Turbine Engineering Handbook discusses the advancement in the areas of design, fabrication, installation, operation, and maintenance of gas turbines. This edition is written to better answer today’s problems in the design, fabrication, installation, operation, and maintenance of gas turbines. This book has addressed most of the new developments and maintenance practices, in areas such as lubrication and controls for gas turbines over the past four years.

The use of gas turbines in the petrochemical, power generation, and offshore industries has mushroomed in the past few years. The power industry in the past 10 years has embraced the combined cycle power plants, and the new high-efficiency gas turbines are at the center of this growth segment of the industry. However, owing to the spiraling costs of natural gas, many of these plants designed for base load service have been cycled on a daily basis from part loads of 50% to full load, and in many cases, have had to be shutdown at weekends. The new maintenance chapters, with their case histories, should be of great assistance to the engineers in the field who have to operate their plant at other than design conditions of base loaded operation. Investigation into operation of these plants on other fuels is also covered in this edition.
