A PROPOSED COMBINED CYCLE MARINE POWER PLANT
Since 1975 Solar Turbines International has been developing a sophisticated combined cycle steam design which, when used in conjuction with Solar's new Mars gas turbine, can provide the military or commercial ship operator with a highly efficient yet straight-forward power plant. The specific fuel consumption of this engine system is competitive with the most advanced diesel engines. The system design philosophy followed is discussed and the major system components described. Installation and operational considerations are also presented and discussed. System performance is briefly covered as it relates to economy of ship operation. Control and monitoring philosophy are presented.
