MARINE GAS TURBINE APPLICATIONS MANUAL. VOLUME I. HEAVY-DUTY GAS TURBINE DESIGN, PERFORMANCE, AND APPLICATION DATA
This document describes a part of the work performed within Task 8, Marine Systems Engineering and Analysis of the Heavy-Duty Gas Turbine Development Program, or MARAD Project. The MARAD Project is an integrated effort to develop the heavy-duty gas turbine as an alternate competitive form of marine power generation. The costs of this program are shared equally by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Maritime Administration and the General Electric Company, Gas Turbine Products Division. This document represents one of three volumes of the Task 8 Final Report. It presents Vol. I, Design, Performance and Application Data of the Marine Gas Turbine Applications Manual developed in this task. This specific volume covers gas turbine design parameters, performance, and application data to permit owners, naval architects, and shipyards to select the correct gas turbine and to evaluate performance of the integrated system.
