Gas Turbine Performance

Gas Turbine Performance (21st-24th Sep 2022)

Description

The gas turbine engine is a very complex device. Its high power to weight ratio has made it the propulsion system of choice in aircraft applications. It is also used extensively in the oil, gas, power and process industries. An understanding of the basic principles underpinning its design, operation and behaviour is essential for all engineers involved in the development, production, procurement and use of gas turbines.

What you will learn

The course provides delegates with an understanding of how different types of gas turbine produce useful power and how their output is influenced by a very wide range of operating conditions. The three major categories of gas turbine applications are covered, civil aviation, military aviation and mechanical power applications. When completing the course the delegate should be able to understand the influence of mission on the choice of gas turbine cycle and how gas turbines behave in a very wide range of operating conditions.
