Preface: Gas Turbine Engineering Handbook discusses the design, fabrication, installation, operation, and maintenance of gas turbines. The third edition is not only an updating of the technology in gas turbines, which has seen a great leap forward in the 2000s, but also a rewriting of various sections to better answer today’s problems in the design, fabrication, installation, operation, and maintenance of gas turbines. The third edition has added a new chapter that examines the case histories of gas turbines from deterioration of the performance of gas turbines to failures encountered in all the major components of the gas turbine. The chapter on Maintenance Techniques has been completely rewritten and updated. The revised chapter deals with Long Term Service Agreements (LTSAs), and special maintenance tables have been added so that you can troubleshoot problems on gas turbines that you may encounter.
The new advanced gas turbines have firing temperatures of 2600 ◦F (1427 ◦C), and pressure ratios exceeding 40:1 in aircraft gas turbines, and over 30:1 in industrial turbines. This has led to the rewriting of Chapter 7, to fully understand the operating mechanics of these high pressure ratio axial-flow compressors. The chapter covers in detail the advent of surge, and describes in great detail the different mechanisms of surge, rotating stall, and choke flow conditions in the compressor of the gas turbine. Advances in materials and coatings have spurred this technology, and the new edition has treated this new area in great detail. The emphasis on low NOx emissions from gas turbines has led to the development of a new breed of Dry Low NOx combustors, and their problems are dealt with in depth in this new edition. The third edition deals with an upgrade in the design and maintenance of advanced gas turbines and deals with most of the applicable codes both in the area of performance and mechanical standards.
he new edition has been written with the experienced engineer in mind who is working in power plants, and in petrochemical and offshore installations. This edition should help him or her understand more clearly problems encountered in the field, and how to prevent them. The book also provides the basic fluid mechanics and thermodynamics for the young engineering graduate or undergraduate student who is being exposed to the turbomachinery field for the first time.
The book is very useful as a textbook for undergraduate or graduate turbomachinery courses as well as for in-house company training programs related to the petrochemical, power generation, and offshore industries.
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 ten years has embraced the combined cycle power plants, and the new highefficiency gas turbines are at the center of this growth segment of the industry. However, due 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 on 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 of operating these plants on other fuels is also handled in this edition.
The book will give the manufacturer a glimpse of some of the problems associated with gas turbines in the field and help users to achieve maximum performance efficiency and high availability of their gas turbines.
I have been involved in the research, design, operation, and maintenance of gas turbines since the early 1960s. I have also taught courses at the graduate and undergraduate level at the University of Oklahoma and Texas A&M University, and now, in general, to the industry. There have been over 4000 students through my courses designed for the engineer in the field, representing over 450 companies from around the world. They have used the book, and their comments and my field troubleshooting experience have been very influential in the updating of material in this edition. The enthusiasm of the students associated with these courses gave me the inspiration to undertake this endeavor. The many courses I have taught over the past 35 years have been an educational experience for me as well as for the students. The discussions and consultations that resulted from my association as a consultant to the power, petrochemical, and aviation industries with highly professional individuals have been a major contribution to both my personal and professional life as well as to this new edition of the book. In this edition I have tried to assimilate the subject matter of various papers (and sometimes diverse views) into a comprehensive, unified treatment of gas turbines.
Many illustrations, curves, and tables are employed to broaden the understanding of the descriptive text. I have provided extensive new charts that can be used to diagnose problems. In addition, the references direct you to sources of information that will help you investigate and solve your specific problems. I hope that this book will serve as a reference text after it has accomplished its primary objective of introducing you to the broad subject of gas turbines. I wish to thank the many engineers whose published work and discussions have been a cornerstone to this work. The Turbomachinery Symposium, of which I had the distinct honor and pleasure of founding and chairing for eight years, and the proceedings of the Symposium, have contributed many interesting technology issues from both a design and maintenance point of view. A special thanks also goes to my colleagues on the Advisory Committee of the Texas A&M University Turbomachinery Symposium, of which I have been a member for 34 years, and to Dr. Dara Childs, who is now the chairman of the Advisory
I wish to acknowledge and give a very special thanks to my wife, Zarine, for her readiness to help and her constant encouragement throughout this project. A special thanks also to my secretary and executive assistant Donna Masters for the hours she has spent working with me on this new edition.
I sincerely hope that this new edition will be educational and will enable you to get a new updated look at gas turbine technology and enhanced maintenance practices, while retaining the basic theory that governs the development of gas turbines.
