Gas turbine

  1. Apr 14, 2015 #1
    Hey guys
    Don't know if this is posted in the right category.
    doing an technical report on industrial gas turbines. but i am kind of lost. Does anyone have any input to what we can write about? I'm thinking of any problems with the turbines that we can write about.
    What heat loss and how much energy it can produce?

    Have you read up on this subject yet? What have you learned so far?

    For starters look at the difference between those with a mechanical drive and those with a free power turbine.

    Yes, but it's all basic stuff. How it works and ideal gas turbine cycles, T-s diagrams and effiency for starters.
    Have not read so much on various types of gas turbines, but given that we have a relatively short report reflecting the thermodynamic aspects we feel that it is going too far into the depth of irrelevant things.

    If there is a limit to the length of the report, then it's just a judgement call on your part to decide what you want to include and how to make it concise. It's hard to help you with that.
