AN INTEGRATED GAS TURBINE POWER PLANT STUDY
The study of a 20,000-SHP, single-screw, integrated gas turbine power plant, conducted in compliance with the Maritime Administration's "scope of work" and the PD108 ship design, is reported. Significant results include: (1) a regenerative, two-shaft gas turbine is selected for the main power plant; (2) the expected all-purpose fuel rate for the ship at design conditions is 0.496 lb/SHP-hr; (3) a mechanical drive transmission system was selected having a double reduction gear and a controllable- and reversible-pitch propeller; (4) an auxiliary steam system is used with steam generated by means of a heat-recovery boiler and supplemented by auxiliary hot gas generators; (5) a gas turbine-generator set provides ship's standby electrical service and port electrical power requirements. Daily operating costs of the main propulsion plant and supporting auxiliaries are estimated, and the design performance data for the integrated gas turbine power plant are tabulated.
