ET 795 Simulation of a Gas Turbine
Education / GUNT Hamburg / Thermal Engineering and HVAC / Power Engines and Machines /

Nine different process parameters can be set using potentiometers on the front panel of the experimental unit.

  The software provides a wide range of diagrams and graphs.

  The simulator can model the theoretical system limits without hazard, limits at which real systems would be destroyed or seriously damaged.

  The measured values are transmitted directly to a PC via USB. The data acquisition software is included.

Learning Objectives / Experiments
- Basic understanding of a gas turbine process
- Special features of a two-shaft turbine system with 
  free-running power turbine
- Thermodynamic state variables
- Starting a gas turbine
- Mapping performance characteristics
- Variation of efficiencies
- Change in the air ratio

[1] Simulated operation of a gas turbine system
[2] Modification of 9 system parameters using potentiometers
[3] Software calculates: air ratio, pressure ratio of compressor, efficiency, mass flow rates of gas and air, drive shaft power and generator power
[4] LabVIEW software for data acquisition via USB under Windows XP or Windows Vista
