A method of finite differences for calculating the transient characteristics of a gas-turbine power plant is offered; the method is claimed to be simpler and more reliable as compared to existing methods. The following formulas are developed: rate-of-flow in the turbine; same in the compressor; compression in the compressor; expansion in the turbine; balance of total compression ratio and total expansion ratio; rate-of-change of gas quantity in the capacity ( regeneration case ); heat exchange in the regenerator; power balance in the compressor shaft; compressor efficiency; turbine efficiency. The above formulas, some additional turbine formulas, and ship-propulsion formulas are tabulated. Peculiarities in the calculation of a load-drop case are discussed. ( Author )
