ALTERNATIVE CLOSED-CYCLE GAS TURBINE SYSTEM DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS FOR SHIP PROPULSION APPLICATIONS

The general requirements and constraints applicable to propulsion engines for advanced ships are reviewed, and major design variances from the traditional land-based closed-cycle gas turbine power systems are identified. The potential impact of these system requirements and design variances will have on the selection of thermodynamic and mechanical design alternatives applicable to the power conversion system are evaluated, and some trade-off considerations, including the domain of optimal system design, are discussed.
