This best selling reference provides the fundamental information you'll need to understand both the operation and proper application of all types of gas turbines. Hardware and application scenarios are fully explored, along with operating parameters, controls, inlet and exhaust treatments, inspection, troubleshooting, noise control, inlet cooling for power augmentation, and NOx control. The newly updated fifth edition includes expanded coverage of waste heat recovery, including how the technology is applied, and a detailed discussion of both its advantages and challenges to its use with gas turbines. Microturbines are fully covered, along with critical elements of centrifugal and axial compressors. Also treated are the effects of the external environment on gas turbine operation and life, as well as the impact of the turbine on its surrounding environment. Many helpful tips are included to enable early diagnosis of problems and analysis of failures to prevent their recurrence.
