VARIABLE GEOMETRY COMPRESSORS FOR IMPROVEMENT OF GAS TURBINE PART LOAD PERFORMANCE

The proposed variable geometry compressor cycle is designed around part load conditions, with maximum power being obtained by opening the guide vanes and increasing the rotational speed of the compressor. Although its performance is not competitive with current engines utilizing variable geometry turbines or Power Transfer, the variable geometry compressor does seem to offer increased potential as the trend towards higher turbine inlet temperatures continues. /GMRL/
